A care home is taking in new residents after making a series of changes to address failings identified during an inspection.

In April the Care Quality Commission found Manton Hall in Lyndon Road, Manton, was failing to meet five out of six care standards and was putting its residents at risk.

Inspectors gave told the home’s director Shraga Zaltzman to put together a report explaining how the failings would be addressed. Rutland County Council also kept a close eye on the home and started a “large scale investigation”.

The council’s people (adults and health) scrutiny panel was given an update on the home on Thursday last week. Councillors were told it had made good progress.

A spokesman said: “After identifying a number of issues at Manton Hall, Rutland County Council has been working closely with the owners to implement a long-term improvement programme. Both the Council and Care Quality Commission are happy with the positive steps that have been taken by the home since April and scrutiny was pleased to learn that Manton Hall is now taking in new residents.”

Mr Zaltzman added: “We have invested significant resources in upgrading the environment, enhancing staff training and ensuring that Manton Hall provides superb care, and a safe, warm and homely environment for its residents.

“We recently welcomed our new home manager Samantha Humphreys who brings with her a wealth of experience, professionalism and a passion for care. We are very pleased with the outcome of the effort that has been put in over the past number of months and are grateful to Rutland County Council for their continued support”

Mr Zaltzman passed on a comment from Karen Coffey, whose father is at the home. She said: “I am very pleased with the positive changes that have been made at Manton Hall over the past few months.”
