Inspectors said it was nice to see people singing songs together at a north-east care home.
Monitors from the Care Inspectorate watchdog visited Havencourt Care Home on Forest Gardens, Stonehaven, on July 28 and have now published their report.
The home can look after up to 42 older people and inspectors rated it “good” for staffing and for planning care and support.
This is the third best of six possible ratings.
“We felt staff worked with people in a way that was dignified and respectful of their privacy and choices,” said the report.
“During the inspection we saw staff responding to people with interactions that had a positive impact on their mood.
“There were some activities planned and it was nice to see people choose to sit together and enjoy the radio with a sing-song.”
