A RESIDENTIAL home in Malpas has given the seal of approval following an inspection into quality of life and care.

Prospect House, based in High Street, was recently inspected by consumer group Healthwatch Cheshire.

Making their visit to Prospect House under their enter and view review service, the team of inspectors made observations that staff were passionate and knowledgeable of older people’s needs and were proactive in driving this forward to ensure the health and wellbeing of those they care for.

Specifically picking up on the home’s Residents’ Charter of Rights it was observed residents have the freedom of access to Skype and email services, ensuring they can maintain contact with friends and relatives as and when each resident decides.

Focus on wellbeing was also highlighted where inspectors made specific reference to a person centred care approach where each resident has an individual care plan, which is updated regularly in consultation with each resident and their families.

Sharon Dodds, registered manager at Prospect House, said the inspectors were impressed with the facility and the level of care at the home.

“We are delighted to have had the opportunity to receive the Healthwatch inspectors and share what life is really like at Prospect House," said Sharon.

"They were also able to fully take in the recent one million pound refurbishment, which certainly impressed them with the level of additional facilities on offer.

“Residents flourish at Prospect House, whether they are taking part in in-house activities, cultural visits out, being entertained by local acts, or enjoying one of our many gourmet menus, created by our award winning chef.

"Our focus is to provide a fully rounded quality of life for everyone we care for and we are very happy to be recognised for this.”
