Hazeldene care home has been rated 'good' by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an inspection visit.

Ten people with learning disabilities are supported at the Reading home, where they receive 'safe care and treatment', according to a report published on 18 November 2019 by the CQC.

'People enjoyed a positive relationship with staff which was built on trust, dignity and mutual respect. People were encouraged to maintain their independence and celebrate their uniqueness,' the report adds.

There were enough staff at the home and the environment was clean. 

During the inspection, the CQC spoke with three people living at the home and five members of staff. Records covering people's care and medication, staff recruitment and organisation policies were also checked.

The CQC is the national independent body that checks the quality and safety of NHS and care services and has legal powers to order improvements or close those that are failing.
