Independent care provider, Southern Healthcare announces that The Old Rectory Care home based in Exeter, has been rated ‘overall outstanding’ by Care Quality Commission (CQC), in four domains: effective, responsive, caring and well-led, and is one of only three nursing homes in Exeter to be awarded this high-rating. And it’s a double celebration for Southern Healthcare as the CQC has also just awarded their Dawlish care home – Sefton Hall an ‘Outstanding’ rating.
The innovative care team at The Old Rectory has brought the ‘outside in’ for residents and families, as a part of their ongoing activity programme. Within the home, they have created a country-style pub called ‘The Duke of Wellington’ offering beer and spirits. A contemporary café serving specialist roasted coffee and light snacks located in the heart of the home, converts into a cinema classic films with matinee and evening showings served with popcorn. The latest addition to the home is the new beer garden with cocktail bar, and kegs of award-winning Avocet beer kindly donated by Exeter Brewery; helping to make it the perfect setting for residents and their visitors to enjoy quality time together.
