What the care home does well
Wells Court provides care of a good standard in accommodation that is spacious, clean and comfortable. A thorough assessment is completed for any new resident and information is provided regarding the home and services available. Each resident has a care plan, which is reviewed on a regular basis. There are a range of recording systems and daily checks to ensure that residents` health is monitored and any changes or concerns are addressed promptly. The District nurse said that the staff and management complete good health records and follow their advice and guidance as required. Routines in the home are flexible and residents can choose whether to spend time in their rooms or in the company of others. Several of the staff have worked in the home for many years and have a good understanding of residents needs. The acting manager works closely with the staff team and makes herself regularly accessible to the residents.

The washing machine has the specified programming ability to meet disinfection standards. All staff have now received training in first aid.
