St Peter’s Park care and nursing home in Bexhill rated Good

Published: Monday 4th April 2022

The care and nursing home in Bexhill-on-Sea at St Peter’s Park Retirement Village has been rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulator, in a report recently published following inspection.

The home in Church Street, run by independent care provider Agincare, provides high quality residential, nursing care, respite and dementia care for older people living with a range of health care needs.

The CQC inspection, which came unannounced, saw the home inspected between 21-25 February 2022 in five areas: safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led. The inspector gathered feedback from the local authority and health professionals. They reviewed a range of documents, including medication and personnel records plus other information related to management of the home and health and safety.

The inspector met with residents, observed care and support delivered by workers, and also spoke with the registered manager and team members. The inspection report found that people were treated with respect and dignity, and that the St Peters’ team were caring in their approach to those that they supported.

Other findings said people were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives, and that the team supported people in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests.

The report included many positive comments from residents, visitors and health professionals. It recognised the clear leadership of Registered Manager Lisa Turner in guiding staff to deliver a consistently good level of care.
