Althea Park House has been praised by the CQC...

A Stroud home for young people with eating disorders has been rated 'good' overall and in all categories by CQC, following a recent regulatory inspection. 

In its latest report, the CQC praised Althea Park House for having a “genuine sense of fondness and respect between the staff and people” and treating people “with understanding, kindness, respect and dignity”.

Residents spoke very positively of staff. Comments made to inspectors included “they care for me very much” and “they look out for me”. Resident’s relatives said that staff were “very good” and “caring”, as part of their feedback.     

Residents are supported to go to therapy sessions, walking, shopping and to visit attractions such as Alton Towers. A resident’s relative said that their family member had a “very active and fulfilling life”.

Althea Park House is a residential facility that treats 15-24 year olds for complex, severe and enduring eating disorders. It currently holds the Beat Assured Quality Mark

James King, Service Director, said, “We are delighted with the outcome of this inspection. Our team has an excellent bond with our service users and this helps create an environment whereby they can work toward a successful recovery.”

Simon Coles, CEO of Priory Education and Children’s Services, said: “The CQC rightly holds the service in such a high regard. Althea Park House’s person-centred ethos is clearly at the heart of its success. I am sure that it will go from strength to strength.”
