I just wanted to drop you all a quick note of support

"I just wanted to drop you all a quick note of support - I saw the feedback to the CQC report from Clive on Facebook and read the report.  I work in health publishing and get to read a lot of CQC stuff … I'm full of admiration for Boars Tye and the quality of care given - in particular the staff interaction with residents, and the real sense of care and friendliness. I look forward to visiting, and am immensely grateful that mum is in such a supportive environment that has a real sense of ‘home', rather than just being ‘a home’. I visited and contacted a lot of care homes in making the decision and we quickly took mum out of another (very local) care home where she’d been placed temporarily by Essex Social Care -  the atmosphere was very uncaring and mum was dreadfully sad and lonely. As you know, she is now (on a good day!) a happy little songbird - in fact happier than she has been in years! Things like hot water temperatures can be fixed and I’m sure will be, but building that kind of level of staff community and commitment is I think something special and you should be really, really proud. Reports are not everything. I think the photos on your web page speak for themselves. You’re all doing a great job in my view" Best wishes, Katharine
