Welcome to Windmill Court

My name is Julie Barton and I qualified in the early 80s as a Nurse in Salford Greater Manchester. I spent the early part of my career in the Neurosurgical ICU and General ICU, then moved onto working in the stroke rehab unit which led me to my passion in working in elder care sector. In addition to working in the NHS for the bulk of my early career I have also worked in other sectors settings both public and private.I relocated to Cornwall 2 years ago and managed a service in Penzance – Care Home with Nursing before taking up the position of care home manager here at Windmill court.

I believe that the focus of care should be resident led and we have lots of exciting plans here at Windmill Court to enable our residents as well as staff – for example we now have a “resident committee” with two spokespersons who will be the point of call for all queries on how we provide care and make people safe.

Windmill Court provides nursing, palliative care, day care and respite care. The home can also accommodate individuals with sensory impairments, and physical disabilities. The modern single-storey building is home to up to 34 elderly people. Each resident has a single en-suite bedroom.

We were delighted with the outcome of the February 2017 CQC inspection and are committed to working with our residents, their families, and Health & Social Care professionals to continually improve and develop our services.

We were pleased with many of the positive observations the CQC noted in their report, including:

  • People who were able to talk to us about their view of the service told us they were happy with the care they received and believed it was a safe environment. People and their visitors commented, “I love it here”,”[Person’s name] is always treated well “and “It’s excellent.” Where people were unable to tell us about their experiences we observed they were relaxed and at ease with staff. People had good and meaningful relationships with staff and staff interacted with people in a caring and respectful manner.

  • People were able to make choices about their daily lives. People’s care plans recorded their choices and preferred routines. For example, what time they liked to get up in the morning and go to bed at night. People told us they were able to get up in the morning and go to bed at night when they wanted to. People were able to choose where to spend their time, either in the lounge or in their own rooms. Where people chose to spend their time in their room, staff regularly went in to their rooms to have a chat with them and check if they needed anything. We saw staff asked people where they wanted to spend their time and what they wanted to eat and drink.

  • People and their families had the opportunity to be involved in decisions about their care and the running of the service through regular meetings and coffee mornings. People told us they enjoyed these meetings because they could meet socially with other people and staff. A spokesperson had been nominated to be the lead for gathering people’s views and raising them with management. Staff supported people to maintain contact with friends and family. One person told us staff made regular arrangements them to speak on the telephone with a relative from the USA. Visitors told us they were always made welcome and were able to visit at any time. People were able to see their visitors in one of the communal areas or in their own room. We observed that staff greeted visitors on arrival and made them feel comfortable.
