Extra Care schemes rated “good” by government inspector - 15 Aug 17
Three Extra Care older person schemes, which provide 114 homes across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire, have been rated as providing good overall care by the government’s independent Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The two Peterborough schemes, The Pavilions and Friary Court, are owned by Axiom Housing Association, a member of Longhurst Group, one of the largest housing associations in the Midlands.
The on-site homecare service for these two schemes is managed by Axiom’s in-house care company, Axiom Care. The third service is Willowbank in Chesterton, Cambridgeshire, which is owned by Anchor Housing with Axiom Care managing the homecare service for all residents living in its 34 properties.
All three schemes were inspected by the CQC at the end of June and rated as “good” overall, this is the second highest rating. In addition the inspectors rated the service at The Pavilions and Willowbank as good in terms of it being safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.
Friary Court also received a good rating for four out of the five inspected areas and a “requires improvement’ ranking for how the service is led. Recommendations to improve this area are already being implemented.
Stuart Fort, Director of Operations, at Axiom, said: “Providing good quality care is fundamental within Axiom Care. The reports for all three schemes are a really good reflection on the service we provide to residents and are a testament to the commitment and hard work of our care staff.”
