Our Recommendations

We recommend that The Croft:

  • improves the quality of the food being cooked
  • continues to push the landlord of the property hard to complete outstanding maintenance work
  • introduces regular chair-based activities to maintain / improve mobility
  • continues to bring in community groups e.g. local scouts who may be interested in getting involved with the home as part of a community Impact badge https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/blog/how-scouts-are-uniting-against-dementia
  • encourages staff to chat with residents during mealtimes and sit and eat with them when time allows
  • considers playing background music during mealtimes if the residents would like this
  • arranges more trips out
