IN the world of social care it is the holy grail; to achieve an 'Outstanding' grade by the care regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Only 1% of all 40,000 UK care providers are graded
'Outstanding'  in recognition of those providers that are truly exceptional, care innovators and those who deliver extraordinary care to those they are entrusted to look after.

Southport based Rosebank Care Home for adults with learning disabilities have just achieved this highest of care accolades. Owned by Jonathan and Joanne Cunningham and with Registered Care Manager Gill Young, Rosebank becomes one of the 1st Merseyside Care Home to achieve this unique care award. The home was inspected in November yet was informed 3 weeks ago of their grade.

"We are absolutely delighted that the consistent hard work of all our staff has paid off. It is a true recognition of our exceptional care team and their vocational dedication to our residents. The quality of our care was evident the moment CQC turned up." said Jonathan.

CQC specifically graded the Home's leadership and quality of care as 'Outstanding.' Innovative use of IT, prolific social media and filming, pet therapy and advanced IT communications with staff, residents and relatives made this home stand out from all others. Specifically Rosebank was able to evidence that they were at the forward edge of care trials and were recognised as significant influencers in care via social media. Rosebank's willingness to share best practise with other care homes was also a major factor for the Rosebank award. Jonathan said:- "CQC commented that few care providers share ideas and in the manner that Rosebank Care Home do"

Debbie Westhead, Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care in the North, said:- "We found the quality of care provided at Rosebank Care Home in Southport to be outstanding. People told us that they were extremely happy with the level of care that they received and we saw a relaxed, homely atmosphere. It was impressive to see the way that Rosebank had harnessed new technology and social media to engagement with not just people using the service, but their relatives and even stakeholders. People told us this approach had an extremely positive impact on them and this was clear to see. We were also impressed with the lengths that staff went to, to ensure that people's care was responsive to their needs. We saw staff rewording information for people when they didn't understand it and also that people had choice and control over their lives. The whole team should be very proud of the service they are providing."

Owner Joanne Cunningham said:- "At a time when the media is all too often full of tales of poor care delivered by failing care providers it is a delight to promote and advertise that there are good and outstanding care providers going the extra 100 miles for their lovely residents! We aren't interested in compliance what we deliver is far beyond the minimum level set by CQC. What Rosebank does is a true honour to serve our residents to fulfil and enjoy the best life ever! We are humbled by this award."
