Abbeycrest care home in Sonning Common has been described by South Oxfordshire Environmental Health Officer, Christian Moore, as ‘one of the best homes I have ever visited’.
The comment came after the home, which is part of the Caring Homes Group, received an unannounced inspection. Abbeycrest was awarded a Food Standards Agency Five Star hygiene rating on the spot for the fourth consecutive year.
Marilyn Kimayong, Home Manager at Abbeycrest said: “The health of our residents is always our primary concern and it’s fantastic to receive the 5* rating as 14-20 March is Global Nutrition & Hydration Week.
“We are delighted to have our exemplary food hygiene levels recognised once again and receive such excellent feedback from the inspector. His report says that he witnessed very high standards during his visit and that our Head Chef was very knowledgeable.”
Abbeycrest has also been rated Good by the CQC in an inspection in April 2015. The home provides care for up to 70 elderly people.
