A CARE home has been given a clean bill of health in its latest inspection from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The healthcare watchdog rated Cherry Blossom Manor Care Home in German Road, Bramley as ‘good’ following its inspection in February.

The report, released at the end of March, rated the care home as ‘good’ in all five areas which the organisation examines, including safety and effectiveness.

The Barchester Healthcare-run facility’s staff were praised by inspectors.

In the inspectors report it read: “We observed that staff were compassionate, patient and kind. They knew people well, took time to speak with people and provided individualised support.

“We observed one staff member sitting with a group of people in the coffee lounge.

“They took time to speak to each person individually and offered them drinks and snacks.”

The report also noted: “People living at Cherry Blossom Manor received individualised care.

“Staff held conversations with people and regular meetings to gain their feedback on care provided. Records we reviewed showed staff had acted on people’s feedback.”

It was also noted by the inspector there was a varied schedule of activities for people to take part in, as well as provision for those who do not want to engage in whole group activities, with staff planning smaller groups.

General manager at Cherry Blossom, Gigi Despojo, said: “We are delighted that Cherry Blossom was rated ‘good’ overall following the CQC’s most recent inspection.

“The team at Cherry Blossom always strive to provide the best possible quality care for everyone who lives at the home.”

In celebration of the positive result and to thank the members of the team for their contributions, each team member at Cherry Blossom was presented with a £100 gift voucher.
