A long-held ambition for Cordelia House
Cordelia House, our care home in Fareham, Hampshire, has been rated ‘Good’ following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) – the independent healthcare body that regulates health and social care in England.
The report saw the care home rated ‘Good’ in four key areas: Safe, Effective, Caring, and Well-Led, with the Responsive category given a rare ‘Outstanding’ rating: bestowing Cordelia House an overall ‘Good’ rating in a report published 12 January.
Most importantly, the report found that residents of Cordelia Care Home receive a consistently high standard of care, supported by a dynamic people-first approach to the service.
Everyone the inspectors spoke to, which included relatives of residents and external professionals, gave positive feedback about the dedicated, professional and supportive care team.
