Dunollie CQC report

You can view and download the first Dunollie Residential & Nursing Home, Scarborough CQC report since it became part of Lotus Care. This CQC report was published in December 2021.

From the CQC report

In the section titled ‘Is the service caring?’:

People received care and support from staff who were compassionate and caring. People and relatives described them as, ‘Fantastic’, ‘Respectful and caring’ and ‘Kind and gentle.’

There were enough staff on duty to deliver person-centred care to people.

Communication between families and staff was good. The management team and staff kept relatives up to date with their loved one’s care and health. A relative said, ‘During lockdown we spoke on the phone daily with [Name] and staff let us know how they were doing health-wise.’

Our team

Our care team is on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.

To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.

Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.

We work in close partnership with GPs and other health professionals and specialist services.

We enable people to maintain lifestyles that are as similar as possible to those enjoyed at home whilst encouraging regular interaction with the local community, including contact with friends, family and local groups. We encourage friends and family to be involved through regular visits and participation in special activities, events and open days.

The activities offered are tailored to our residents’ individual choices and interests. Residents can choose to take part in a wide variety of social and leisure activities including chair-based exercise classes, bingo and trips out. We also have regular entertainers that provide a variety of engaging experiences for residents, their relatives and friends.

Care and Support

We understand that people bring with them a life story of achievements, events and life experiences. We use such information to create a tailored care package for each individual’s specific needs.

We ensure that our person-centred assessments are all tailored to the whole person and we will look at what people can do, not just what they need assistance with. Most importantly we ensure that the individual themselves and their loved ones help us to put together a bespoke plan of care. We appreciate how difficult the decision is to move into permanent or even short stay care and we aim to make this transition as easy as possible.
