The Care Quality Commission has found the quality of care provided by Laxton Hall in Corby, Northamptonshire, to be Outstanding overall following an inspection in January.
Laxton Hall provides accommodation for up to 29 people who require nursing or residential care for a range of personal care needs. The provider staffed the home with Polish Sisters of Mary Immaculate, an order recognised for its humanity and compassion.
The Sisters were sent from the Mother House in Poland, where they gained experience in caring for the elderly, particularly those who have been affected by World War II events. They provide supervision and guidance to all staff in order to uphold the Polish culture, traditions and language.
Inspectors found staff were caring and compassionate and people were being provided with safe, responsive, caring, effective and well-led care.
Rob Assall-Marsden, CQC’s head of inspection for Adult Social Care in the central region said: “Our inspection team were really impressed by the level of care and support offered at Laxton Hall. The strong cultural and compassionate ethos of the service provided at Laxton Hall was evident in all areas.
“Everyone living here receives person centred and culturally specific care, which promoted all aspects of being Polish and created a positive healing environment.
“People’s healthcare needs were met by staff who were highly competent at closely monitoring clinical observations which enabled them to identify any deterioration in health quickly in order to respond.”
