A residential home ordered to take action by the health watchdog has made a huge improvement, inspectors have found.

Aadams Residential Care Home in Deepdale, Preston was visited by inspectors from the health watchdog the Care Quality Commission.

Earlier this year the home in Peel Hall Street, had been ordered to make improvements after it failed to meet standards in a number of areas including cleanliness and safety.

Now a new report from an inspection in September shows the home is meeting standards in: care and welfare of people who use services; meeting nutritional needs; management of medicines and assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision.

Inspectors found action was needed over the safety and suitability of premises because but said this had a minor impact.

Today bosses at the home said action had been taken. A spokesman said: “We at Aadams Residential Care Home are constantly trying to achieve and provide the optimum level of care, facilities and amenities for all our service users.

“This is our most important core value within our organisation.

“We take pride in the person centred care we provide and we are continuously striving to improve our Service User experience.

“You will note that the CQC have acknowledged that we have met all the standards required bar one which was very minor in nature and rectified almost immediately which shall be reflected in our next report.

“Nevertheless we have reviewed the report and as always are striving to improve our service and you will note the report highlights that the care we provide is off a high standard.”
