Mount Olivet recently underwent an inspection by CQC and are thrilled to announce that they have been awarded Outstanding! Mount Olivet is the first nursing home for the elderly to be awarded this in Torbay and South Hams which is an enormous achievement.

The introduction to the report says:

Why the service is rated Outstanding:

On entering the home there was an exceptionally welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Staff were extremely compassionate, attentive and caring in their interactions with people. One relative told us, "The care here is top class." Another said, "There is such a feeling of family and warmth here." Mount Olivet's principle aim was to ensure a supportive environment for people where quality of life was paramount. People benefitted because Mount Olivet was extremely well led by an experienced and exceptionally proactive registered manager who was also a registered nurse and the homes clinical lead. They had an open leadership style, promoted a positive culture, and were committed to high standards of care and continuous improvement. The registered manager had taken the management of care at Mount Olivet to a new level of excellence.
