Salvete is Latin for ‘Welcome’ and this is what we extend to everyone who visits.
Established in 1956, the home provides individualised care both for the elderly and those under 65, people with dementia and the physically frail.
Salvete Care Home provides a high standard and quality of professional care in homely and pleasant surroundings by means of a person centred approach, in a clean, comfortable, friendly and supportive environment. We understand that moving into a Care Home can be a stressful experience for residents and families. We take pride in our ability to support people through this process with empathy and sensitivity, to make them feel welcome and settled into the Home.
Salvete Care Home has an excellent reputation in Bedfordshire and was selected to feature on the BBC News. The feature shows us working in partnership with local medical professionals to provide a high level of care and services, as well as working to reduce admissions to hospital for the benefit and well-being of our residents. The Home was also showcased in Care Home Management Magazine focusing on Resident satisfaction and welfare.
Salvete Care Home is an active member of the ‘My Home Life’ movement, sponsored by Age UK, City University and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. My Home Life is a collaborative partnership aimed at promoting and improving the quality of life in Care Homes.
The Home is fully compliant with CQC Inspection criteria and has received a ‘GOOD’ rating in all areas.
OverallRead overall summary
We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.
This inspection took place on 11 & 12 February 2016 and was unannounced.
This inspection was carried out by two inspectors.
Before the inspection the provider completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We checked the information we held about this service and the service provider. We also contacted the Local Authority. No concerns had been raised and the service met the regulations we inspected against at the last inspection which took place in July 2014.
During our inspection we observed how staff interacted with people who used the service.
We spoke with nine people who used the service, the manager, the provider, the chef and six care staff.
We reviewed three peopleâs care records, four medication records, four staff files and records relating to the management of the service, such as quality audits.
