Jasmine House nursing home in Reading has been rated ‘good’ following its latest quality inspection.
The Care Quality Commisison, which checks care homes are properly looking after residents, said in a report published 3 November 2017, that residents and relatives felt people were safe and well cared at Jasmine House. People and relatives also felt they had opportunities to raise issues and their opinions of the service were sought and acted upon. People also enjoyed a good range of activities, entertainment and some outings.
People’s dignity was managed well, ‘with the exception of hairdressing, which was still being carried out in the Jasmine unit dining area’. There was also a need for additional staff support for people in the dementia unit of Jasmine House, who chose to spend time away from the main lounge.
Jasmine House cares for up to 79 people in a building in west Reading, over three floors, accessible via lifts.
