We are nearing the end of another great year at Swallows Meadow Court and Christmas is almost upon us.
During 2016 we commenced a programme of refurbishing the interior of the Home and this is now 75% complete with the remainder due for completion during the early part of 2017 – thank you all for your tolerance, patience and understanding during this period of disruption however I’m sure that you will agree that the results have been very well worthwhile.
Swallows Meadow Court’s most recent Inspection by the CQC (Care Quality Commission) judged the service against the following standards: Safe?, Effective?, Caring?, Responsive? and Well led? The service was rated to be “Good” in all areas but received the highest accolade of “Outstanding” for Caring and that is what our people are all about.
Following an intense Company wide audit by Investors in People Solihull Care Ltd has achieved the Gold (previously Silver) Standard and this is in recognition of the manner in which the organisation operates and the excellent quality of service delivered by our staff to all of those receiving our care and support.
We have a number of Events planned in the lead up to Christmas:
Monday 5th December: Annual Christmas Fete 2pm until 4pm.
The Fete raised £310.00 and a big thank you goes to all those that gave their support. (£280 will be spent on small Christmas Gifts for Residents and the remaining £30.00 will go to the Activities Fund).
