Abbey Court gets Care Inspectorate nod

Abbey Court has gained a  ‘very good’ grading from the Care Inspectorate following an inspection on December 7th 2018.

The 23 flatted very sheltered scheme  in Mintlaw gained the second highest grading level for its care and Castlehill is very happy with the postive comments relating to the scheme layout and tenant satisfaction.

“I’m absolutely delighted to hear this,” says Mandy Rae, the Housing Officer for Abbey Court, “The scheme is a really well laid out. It is a real testament to the staff to have gained such a fantastic grading, and wonderful that the warmth and friendliness between staff and residents have been commented on.”

The report said: ‘Tenant flats were spacious and very comfortable and that tenants spoke of the importance of having their own door, “It’s my own hoose.” There were several welcoming shared areas and lovely social interaction between tenants was observed’ by the Care Inspectorate.  As a result, the Care Inspectorate concluded that Abbey court had a community feel where tenants were included and valued.

The report concludes that tenants choosing to have their care shared between staff at Abbey Court and other agencies were very satisfied with their quality of life living there.  One resident said: “The best thing I ever did was to move in here” another added, “I’m reassured that staff are there if I need them.” HIgh praise indeed.
