High fives all round for care home

A DUMFRIES care home has been hailed following a glowing report by the Scottish Care Inspectorate.

Allanbank Care Home – which is run by not-for-profit provider Sanctuary Care and cares for up to 69 residents– was graded as ‘very good’ across five quality indicators.

These include residents’ wellbeing, leadership, staff performance, the care home setting, and care and support planning.

In the inspection held in February, inspectors praised the “knowledgeable” and “skilled” team at Allanbank for their strong sense of collaboration, which results in “high-quality care for residents”.

Amongst the standout features observed in the report was the care home’s “vibrant” activities programme, which caters to residents’ individual interests.

Reacting to the report, a delighted care home manager Sandra McNay said: “Each member of our team plays a unique role in caring for our residents and in making the environment at Allanbank Care Home so special.   We are passionate about providing our residents with the very best care possible, looking beyond their physical and emotional needs to ensure our residents feel content, enriched, and fulfilled each and every day. We are really proud that this has been formally recognised with our “very good” rating.”

The positive inspection report adds the Dumfries care home’s impressive record, having been named Scotland’s Care Home of the Year at the national Caring UK Awards in 2023.
