We are committed to giving our residents and their relatives a voice and encourage families to provide feedback on the quality of our services.
We actively promote residents and relatives forums and regularly carry out satisfaction surveys that are benchmarked to the industry to ensure that we continue to improve and develop our services to meet people’s needs and expectations. This includes taking part in Your Care Rating, the country’s largest and most authoritative survey of care home residents and we are delighted to be part of this initiative.
The nationwide survey gives residents a voice, putting their care at the heart of understanding more about how well care homes perform. The survey also provides helpful insights into the experiences of people using our service and we have used this information to help us continually improve as an organisation.
Alongside the Your Care Rating survey of residents, we also conduct our own annual survey through an independent research company Ipsos MORI for all relatives of residents.
Recent results from our annual national survey show that 100% of residents at Cornwallis Court are happy with the care and support they receive.
