CQC rates Shropshire home inadequate

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has rated Caradoc House Residential Care Home in Church Stretton, Shropshire, inadequate following an inspection in August.

Caradoc House Residential Care Home provides personal and nursing care for up to 11 people, including those living with dementia. At the time of the inspection there were 10 people using the service.

CQC carried out an unannounced focused inspection of the service to follow up on concerns about how the home was currently being managed.

Following this inspection, the overall rating for the service has dropped from requires improvement to inadequate. How safe and how well led the service is has dropped from requires improvement to inadequate and how caring the service is, has dropped from good to requires improvement.

CQC have also placed Caradoc House in special measures, which means it will be closely monitored and re-inspected to assess whether improvements have been made. If sufficient improvements are not made, CQC could take further action.
