What we did
The report is based on a December 2016 visit by two volunteers and one staff members from Healthwatch Richmond. For each Enter & View visit, Healthwatch Richmond uses its statutory powers to visit wards, talk to patients, relatives and staff, and request information, so it can make recommendations for improvement.
The report highlights that good practice was observed throughout the visit at Dalemead Care Home. The atmosphere was warm, caring and communication between residents, their families, staff and management was excellent. The home had very high standard systems in place to care for its residents, meaning that no recommendations needed to be done.
