An Ipswich care home has been declared “outstanding” following an inspection by the industry watchdog.

Prince of Wales House is one of the first three adult social care services to receive the top judgement under the Care Quality Commission’s new approach to inspection and regulation of the sector.

Inspectors visiting the care home in July 2014 found staff were caring and compassionate and providing effective and well led care. Sue Howard, deputy chief inspector of adult social care in CQC’s central region, said: “We found that people receiving care at Prince of Wales House and their relatives were overwhelmingly positive about the quality of their care. Inspectors found many examples of the home’s management implementing innovative approaches to ensure care was delivered to a high standard. These included staff working creatively to support people’s independence and identity, staff receiving the training and support they need to deliver a high standard of care and efforts being made to ensure the environment was vibrant and friendly.”

Prince of Wales House, which is run by The Partnership in Care, is a residential care for up to 49 older people. It also provides specialist dementia care.
