A care home for deaf people with mental health problems has made positive changes since being rated “inadequate” for safety.

The Care Quality Commission published a report of Harding House last week and found while safety and leadership ‘require improvement’, the responsiveness, effectiveness and caring areas of Harding House are now rated ‘good’.

The previous report, published on February 8, concluded the measures taken by the home to keep residents safe were “inadequate”, and all other areas required improvement.

Charity Action on Hearing Loss, which runs the care home in North Side Wandsworth Common, is “pleased” with the improved rating.

Director of care and support Sharon Bye said: “This and the positive feedback in the report are a result of building good relationships with the people we support, their families and other stakeholders and embedding our person-centred ethos within the service.

“We’re going to continue to work to our original action plan with the CQC to continue to improve.”
