Balhousie Forth View Care Home celebrates latest Care Inspectorate grading

Grade 5

Staff and residents at Fife-based Balhousie Forth View Care Home celebrated achieving two Grade 5 ratings after a recent Care Inspectorate visit by throwing an extra special party.

Forth View in Methil was awarded a ‘very good’ rating of Grade 5 for both ‘Management and Leadership’ and ‘Care and Support’ after introducing a number of initiatives including a drive for more ‘person-centred care’ to enable residents to be more supported and involved in decision making within the home.

The Care Inspectorate’s visit found that residents and their relatives were very happy with the level of care provided and enjoy many of the home’s activities including a Residents Committee, while staff felt well supported and ‘listened to’ by their managers.
