Ghyll Royd Nursing Home in Guiseley has maintained its ‘Good’ rating following a recent routine Care Quality Commission inspection.
The home says the rating is a good reflection of the hard work of staff, as they care for residents with kindness and dignity. The nursing home has recently appointed a new registered home manager Steve Edgar, who joined in January after 30 years working as a nurse. It is in the process of investing in new technology from Person Centred Software to manage the day-to-day care planning of the residents.
Mr Edgar said: “I have been so impressed with the team at Ghyll Royd since I joined, working hard to care for our residents, particularly throughout the difficult pandemic period. Person Centred Software’s Mobile Care Monitoring is a huge step forward for the home, allowing us to deliver high-quality care efficiently, and means we can invest more time with the residents”
Director Steven Spellman said “We are pleased to have Steve on board as we continue to invest in delivering high-quality care at Ghyll Royd. It is an exciting time for the home as we invest in new technology as we move forward from the pandemic. We are very lucky that we are supported by a fantastic team.”
All residents and staff have now been offered both doses of the Covid vaccine, as local GP’s visited the home to administer the vaccinations. The home says it is now hoping to get back to some level of normality back after a very tough period throughout the pandemic. Ghyll Royd is part of the Spellman Care Homes group, a family-run business operating four homes in Yorkshire for over 30 years.
