A DEMENTIA specialist care home has received a glowing report from the care regulator.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated Woodlands Westhoughton "good" at its most recent inspection and relatives and residents praised the care and attentiveness of the staff.

This is the second time in a row the care home has been rated as "good".

Inspectors said: "At this inspection we found the evidence continued to support the rating of good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns."

The report published this month was full of praise for the staff at Woodlands, with one relative saying: "They have been wonderful. They have been very supportive. They know [relative] very well, they know her likes and dislikes."

The inspectors said: "Staff spoken with told us they enjoyed working at the home and that the staff worked well together to create a happy and caring place for the people they cared for."

Residents at the home enjoy taking part in different activities said inspectors, with baking and singing on the agenda, as well as craft making, dancing and a summer fayre.

Throughout the report published in December the inspectors noted the staff had up to date training and responded well when residents were in need of assistance.

One person told inspectors their relative had fallen out of bed but the staff had rearranged their room to make his less likely and had a mat on the floor which alerted staff.

They said: "I have no worries I am 100 per cent confident in the safety of the home."

Another relative commented: "Mum has been in several homes and this is by far the best in regard to safety."

Woodlands Westhoughton Dementia Care Home and Services is in Wigan Road and can care for up to 55 people with Dementia. At the time of its inspection in October there were 53 people living there.
