ALEXANDRAA House Care Centre, based in Southport was recently assessed by Prestige Quality Audits (PQR), reviewing all areas of accommodation and care.

Significantly, the assessor stated he had never rewarded another home with such a high score and found it difficult to find anything wrong.

Alexandra House is owned and operated by BEN, the 'not-for-profit' automotive industry charity and caters for former industry employees, their family and dependents.

This is a fully independent audit providing a complete review covering Standard of Accommodation, Quality of Care, General Residential Care, Health and Safety and Staffing.

The report is extensive but some key statements include:-

Clean, well presented accommodation in an ideal location

Excellent care quality due to well managed, dedicated, highly trained and caring staff

Care is comprehensively planned, assessed and reviewed

Suitable and varied activities are enjoyed and highly rated by residents

The full report is available for anyone to read at Alexandra House.

Jan Habeck, Matron at Alexandra House, commenting on the audit results said:- "We are naturally delighted by this report and its endorsement of our facility, particularly as the auditor put great store by the positive comments and feedback from our residents. Our staff have worked hard to make our Care Centre amongst the best in this area and recognition is richly deserved. I would welcome enquiries from anyone looking for local care and the opportunity to show why we are so highly rated. Please contact Jean O'Donnell on:- 01704 543715 or send her an email."

Lord Mayor helps Downs Syndrome Liverpool

LIVERPOOL'S Lord Mayor Councillor Gary Millar has donated £1000 to Downs Syndrome Liverpool following his work with Young Lord Mayor Sarah Skelland.  At a recent charity ball to raise funds and awareness of Downs Syndrome Liverpool, and celebrate the achievement of people who have this syndrome the Lord Mayor Councillor Gary Millar was moved to donate £1000. The Lord Mayor said:- "I have been working with students from the amazing Sandfield Park School and particularly two Young Lord Mayors. I was invited to join one of these Young Lord Mayor's Sarah Skelland at a recent charity ball and couldn't help but be moved to offer a much needed donation to this wonderful Liverpool based charity.  I have met with Sarah and Pauline, her mother and trustee of the charity and presented a cheque for £1000. I know it will go a long way and I am glad that I have been able to help such a worthwhile charity."  You can help the charity and find out more information about what they do by visiting their website.
