Summary of report content

Healthwatch Surrey conducted an enter and view visit on Cherrydale, a privately owned care home providing care and accommodation for up to 20 residents including those with dementia. This Enter and View visit was carried out as part of a wider project by Healthwatch Surrey into how well care homes in Surrey are 'relationship centred’ - focusing on activity based care and supporting people to continue to be as active and independent as possible. Observations from the enter and view representatives were summarized as: • The residents and their environment looked clean and tidy • We saw evidence of interaction between staff and residents, • Management and Staff were friendly and approachable. • Washroom and toilet facilities were clean and accessible. • There are good accessible disabled facilities for residents and visitors. There were no recommendations or conclusion published in the report, however it does mention that the findings in this report will be considered alongside the findings of the other twenty four Care Homes that were part of a programme of visits exploring activities provision of these services in Surrey. A summary report will be published in January including further conclusions and recommendations of the programme. A brief response from the service provider is included in the report.
