Scarborough care home St Cecilia’s has a ‘good’ reason to join in with the celebration theme of this year’s National Care Home Open Day on Friday 17 June.

The home, on Stepney Road, Scarborough has just learned that it has achieved an across the board good score at its latest inspection.

So when it throws open its doors for the open day, managers and staff will have more reason than most to take up this year’s celebration theme.

The home is expecting a visit from the mayor along with entertainment, including a session run by the SJT OutReach team during the open day.

Acting Care Home Manager Donna Henderson said: “For us the day will be an opportunity to celebrate the lives of our residents, the care that we offer them and the wonderful work carried out every day by our unsung heroes – our staff.

“Above all, it will be a celebration of older and vulnerable adults enjoying a wonderful quality of life thanks to the commitment and dedication of care homes all over the country.” The home received an unannounced inspection by the Care Quality Commission in February and the regulator has published its report.

It shows that across all the CQC’s criteria, which are: safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led, the home was marked as good.

This gave the home an overall score of good.
