A Carnoustie care home has been described as “supportive” and “wonderful” by inspectors.
Brookfield, part of the Balhousie Care Group, has secured two grade five ratings from the Care Inspectorate after the official body made a surprise visit late last year.
Inspectors found staff demonstrated a “very good understanding of people’s specific individual needs” and “supported people with respect and kindness”.
Describing Brookfield as having a “homely atmosphere” where they saw “much enjoyment and laughter”, the Care Inspectorate highlighted the home’s commitment to planning the care and support provided to is residents.
Residents and relatives described staff as “wonderful” and home manager Sarah-Jane Patterson as “very supportive”.
Sarah-Jane said: “Our latest gradings are a reflection of the exceptional work of our team here at Balhousie Brookfield and it is hugely well deserved.
“Our focus on personalised care for each of our residents and providing a comfortable and safe environment is of the utmost importance to us and we are proud for this to have been acknowledged so positively.”
These Care Inspectorate ratings follow a highly successful period for Balhousie Care Group, which is one of the leading providers of care for the elderly.
Claire Docherty, head of operations at the group, said: “The work Sarah-Jane and the team at Balhousie Brookfield have carried out is fantastic.
“Providing personalised care in a safe and welcoming environment is at the heart of what we do and Brookfield has demonstrated its commitment to this and has been recognised as a result.”
