A SOUTH East Cornwall business is being held up in front of hundreds of thousands of policy-makers and business leaders as an example of excellence.

Liskeard care home Coombe House appears in The Parliamentary Review 2018.

The Review is a series of documents published with the aim that the articles act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.

Established by former minister David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review’s release is now a key fixture in the political calendar.

The publication is sent to more than half a million leading policy-makers, industry figures and business leaders.

Coombe House is one of a small number of outstanding organisations featured in a document that looks back on the year in the residential care sector and Westminster.

Coombe has been run by Ann Gray since it opened in 1985, and has been specialising in dementia care for over ten years. It is a ‘Butterfly Home’, a model of care involving in-depth training administered by the organisation Dementia Care Matters.

Coombe House has a specially-created level one star for person-centred care from Dementia Care Matters.

Ann Gray said: ‘It is a great honour for Coombe to have been invited to be part of The Review.

‘It is an acknowledgement of the high level of care we provide, and a testament to the skill and hard work of all our staff.’

Sir Eric Pickles, chairman of the Review, said: ‘It has never been more important for government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress.’

Executive director Daniel Yossman said: ‘Coombe House and other hard-working organisations from across the country have come together to make the Review possible.

‘Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work.

‘It’s always a real joy to hear from policy makers who tell me that something they have read in the Review has had an effect on their thinking.

‘It is my belief that innovation is contagious, if only it is given the platform to spread.’
