We are incredibly proud of the amazinng work our staff have done throughout the last 18 months and feel this is a real testament to the teams hard work, dedication and commitment. 

At The Gables Care Home we have been lucky enough to remain Covid-free throughout the pandemic and feel this is a reflection on the amazing work of the team who adapted their roles and went above and beyond to provide person-centred care throughout the pandemic. 

Within the report our officer said: "All residents and relatives said that staff did not discriminate and treated them in in a manner that respected their values and beliefs". 

Home Manager, Julie Tyler, told us what it meant to receive such a positive review in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic. 

"We wanted to take a moment to say thank you to the amazing team at The Gables who really do go above and beyond every day in every aspect of your work to ensure our residents are living fun-filled, active lives whilst being treated with dignity and independence". 

Thank you for all that you do every day, and well done to you all!
