The home has a focus on dignity, independence and choice, as well as emphasising the importance of hospitality, good food and offering a wide range of activities. Care planning is the basis for care and support, and involves residents and relatives in decision making. Individuals within Castle Rise receive advice and support from a range of health and social care professionals including, GPs, dieticians, speech and language therapists, tissue viability nurses, opticians and chiropodists.
In Castle Rise’s most recent inspection (CQC's copyright, reporting on a June 2013 visit) report the Care Quality Commission (the independent regulatory body for the care sector) noted residents remarking of the care, ‘They are good to me. Nothing is too much trouble.’ And ‘They ask me first and I decide things. Nothing is ever done unless you’ve chosen it yourself.’ Of the food residents said, ‘They come to see you about the menu for the next day,’ and ‘The food is excellent and very well presented.’ Of the service overall a resident said, ‘I’ll never forget how they welcomed me when I arrived here. They are kind and patient with me when I’m having an off day.’
