The team at Glenwood are celebrating being rated ‘Good’ in all areas, demonstrating that the home is providing high standards of care for the people the home supports, which are Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well-Led.
The report praised the care provided at Glenwood as “people were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and colleagues supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests. Dignity and respect were embedded into the service and colleagues spoke at length of how they ensured this was practiced.”
The inspectors also praised the relationship between the people supported and the team at the service commenting, “people were treated with dignity and respect; and involved as partners in their care”. The report commented that relatives consistently told inspectors how people supported at Glenwood were treated with kindness from the support team.

Samantha Brennan, Managing Director at Community Integrated Care said, “Congratulations to the team at Glenwood who have worked incredibly hard to receive such a fantastic report from the Care Quality Commission.
