Summary of report content
Healthwatch Slough undertook engagement with Applegarth Care home during August and September 2020. They spoke to residents and staff.
They found that Applegarth Care Home provides a homely, familial environment in which to care for the 20 residents, some of which have dementia. There were plenty of activities, and contact with family and friends was maintained during the Covid-19 pandemic.
There seems to be high level of satisfaction amongst staff and as such, staff retention is good. The manager appears to have the well-being of staff and residents alike at the forefront, and consequently improvements have been made since being appointed to the role. Particular praise was given that the staff trusted in the management to guide them through Covid restrictions and that they felt supported at all times.
The report includes a response from the provider.
