What the care home does well
The home is in a quiet part of Boston`s old High Street and is very close to shops and facilities. A visitor commented that a reason for choosing the home was that it had a good reputation. People are supported to live as independent a lifestyle as possible in a comfortable and friendly environment and the home is decorated to a good standard. All people spoken with made positive comments about the care they received; one said it was the next best thing to living on your own and another said that he enjoyed being part of the resident group. The staff group is well trained and knowledgeable about the people living at the home and how they prefer to be supported. The manager and senior staff work well as a team and there is a very stable staff group, enabling good knowledge of the needs of people. People are encouraged to make choices about their daily lifestyles and individual likes and dislikes are catered for.
What the care home could do better:
Franklins Lodge has very clear and established quality assurance procedures and where improvements are required they are either planned or being addressed by the manager and staff within the home.
