The Cornmill Nursing and Residential Care Home, Bonds Lane, Garstang, Preston was recently rated as Outstanding from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
CQC stated "during the inspection visit we identified staff wearing 'Older and Out,' badges. We asked staff what these badges were. One staff member explained they signified they had received training in equality and diversity and they were a champion which meant people who lived at the home could come to them to talk to about their sexuality. We found these staff were passionate about providing a non-discriminatory service. One staff member said, "I am aware that people are different. The training we had has made me stop and think. We need to know how to respect people's beliefs and feelings and how to approach them positively." This showed us the service valued people's human rights, as set out in the Human Rights Act 1998".
