A Suffolk mayor praised the attention given by staff to residents of a care home.

Woodbridge mayor Clare Perkins called it a pleasure to visit Jubilee House and the Seckford Almshouses – both run by Seckford Care.

Last month, the Care Quality Commission awarded Jubilee House an overall ‘outstanding’ rating.

The regulator praised the leadership and atmosphere at Jubilee House, which provides residential care for up to 25 older people and is adjacent to the Almshouses’ very-sheltered flats – also rated outstanding last year.

Sarah Kopferschmitt, of Seckford Care, said: “We are very proud that both our services have achieved the outstanding CQC ratings and we are delighted that the mayor shares our passion for quality care.”

The mayor added: “Meeting residents and staff was a pleasure and a joy. To see so many happy, smiling faces all around was especially lovely.

“The care and attention staff give is second-to-none.”
