Carham Hall is a large country mansion house with extensive grounds on the banks of the River Tweed in the beautiful English/Scottish Borders.
Established as a private residential home in 1984, the proprietor, Jean Baxter, who was a District Nurse with Berkshire Health Authority for 21 years and has been proprietor manager at Carham Hall for the past 27 years, lives on the premises and together with a team of friendly, experienced staff provide exceptional Respite, Intermediate, Dementia and permanent Personal Care.
Carham Hall is presented more as a residential Hotel than a care home with well appointed Double, Twin or Single rooms available for couples. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with items from their own home providing a comfortable, homely atmosphere in beautiful surroundings.
The latest CQC Report indicated that improvements were required, this followed a difficult period, during which Mr John Baxter, Jean’s husband passed away. Jean has worked hard to bring all standards back to where they have always been. It should be noted that any highlighed issues were not related to the care of guests.
An unannounced inspection by Environmental Health, who examine the Kitchen, storage, fridges and freezers, cookers and everything including the kitchen sink, once again for the fourth year running we attained a Five Star rating. An inspection by the Lay Observer concentrating on care, comfort and wellbeing of all our residents, the quality of staff, the comfort of the home and the manner in which care is delivered gave Carham Hall top marks.
Please note that the CQC registration was transferred solely to Mrs Jean Baxter early in 2018, all previous inspections can be viewed via the CQC link below and clicking on ‘see old profile’.
