A Yatton care home has been praised for being ‘safe, effective and caring’ after an unannounced inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The CQC is a health watchdog, which inspects and monitors health and social services.

Somerset House, in High Street in Yatton, provides care for up to 26 older people and was rated ‘good’ in all areas.

The report read: “People told us they received effective care and their individual needs were met. People also told us they had opportunities to express their views and staff listened to them.

“We saw staff members interacted with people in a positive and respectful manner.

“We observed staff initiating conversations with people and chatting to them when providing support.”
