Great Harwood care home to make improvements

A CARE home in Great Harwood has been told to make improvements after minor concerns were raised by a health watchdog.

The Care Quality Commission found St Huberts Lodge, in St Huberts Road, was failing to meet two out of five standards examined during a recent inspection, around ‘consent to care’ and ‘supporting workers’.

The inspectors made several positive comments about the home, but added: “The medication system was safe and people told us they received their medicines when they needed them.

“Though some improvements are required in relation to the recording of medications received into the home.

“We found that staff are not receiving appropriate professional development. Records did not show that staff had been provided with on-going training to enable them to develop.”

Ian Cardwell, the home’s manager, said: “We are getting on top of this and the standards will be met within three months.”

What makes elderly people think they deserve special attention. I'm nearly sixty, and I know for a fact I don't deserve any attention.

I'm not stalking you, until Janet feels okay about everything. Under identical circumstances, I would fight and die and do anything else I had to do to protect her.

I'm no expert myself, but I reckon an identical twin sisters feelings should be just as important to the identical twin sisters boyfriend as they are to an identical twin sisters identical twin sister, regardless of which identical twin sister, is the eldest or the youngest.

Your the only one I'm pulling to one side because the need to hold you in my arms again is indescribable. I'm not a divisive type. As a romantic asexual heterosensual, I'm very particular who I come between. Another 25 minutes without you in my arms is a living hell.
