Following the home’s recent positive Care Inspectorate report, John Mason MSP visited the home to congratulate members of staff on achieving ‘Good’ ratings across all standards inspected. He also had the opportunity to meet and speak with residents and take a tour of the home’s facilities.
The Care Inspectorate regulates all care providers in Scotland to ensure they are meeting essential standards of quality and safety.
Members of staff at Ashton Grange Care Centre have worked hard to deliver quality care that has been recognised in its recent improved grades.
