The home has been rated good following a CQC inspection

The manager of an Orpington care home has praised staff after an inspection by the regulator revealed it had improved.

The Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) report gave Foxbridge House on Sevenoaks Road an overall ‘good’ rating following an unannounced inspection on August 30 and 31.

A prior inspection in September 2015 found that the home’s safety, effectiveness and leadership required improvement.

However, all areas are now rated good, with inspectors noting that residents are treated with respect and dignity, and care staff are knowledgeable about their needs.

Manager Carol McCormack said: “We strive to create a welcoming home from home at Foxbridge House and I’m so pleased our efforts have been recognised by the CQC’s inspectors.

“Everyone here works incredibly hard to support residents with compassionate, person-centred care, and to be rated ‘good’ shows just how committed the team is to making a positive difference to residents’ lives each and every day.

“I’m extremely proud of our team and I would like to take say thank you for their hard work and dedication, which I know is also greatly appreciated by residents and their families.”
