Report - Springfield Residential Home, Westgate-on-Sea - June 2019

History:
The care home officially closed in 2015 due to serious concerns about the welfare of elderly residents. An unannounced inspection between June 23 and 26 this year revealed serious risks. The inspection found that the 10 remaining residents in the home were at increased risk of choking, falling, developing pressure sores, malnutrition and dehydration. People were not receiving the care and support they needed as there were not enough staff on duty and the recruitment checks for staff working at the home were not thorough. The provider had not met recommendations and requirements made by the Kent Fire and Rescue Service which meant people were not protected from harm if there was a fire or other emergency. On July the 1st, 20215 the CQC was successful in its application to cancel the registration of Macari Homes Limited with immediate effect. This meant that they can no longer legally provide accommodation and personal care from their premises at Springfield Residential Home. All residents had been moved to alternative accommodation suitable for their needs after the closure.

We hadn’t planned to go out exploring when we come across this place. We just took a day out to Margate and drove past this care home. When we first drove past it on our way to the beach I noticed it and we decided to look at it on the way back. When we parked outside and looked at the exterior we realised this building was way better than we thought. I originally thought it was some kind of mansion because of the angle I had seen it originally but when we got onto the driveway we realised it was probably some kind of care home and we was right. Access onto the grounds was easy as the driveway is just wide open. It was lucky that we went on a Sunday because the builders work here apparently all day on the weekdays, we could’ve potentially of gone in and been caught by builders... ooops.... when we got inside most of it has been ripped out and it’s just an empty building site with some cool windows. The place has suffered some vandalism from the teenagers of the area however it has been abandoned for four years and it is on a well used road so I guess you have to expect that sadly. It was one of the hottest days forecasted so we didn’t spend too long on here as for some apparent reason this building felt like it had the heating on plus with the outside heat when it didn’t... I wouldn’t really say it’s worth a look unless you’re in the area.

My favourite feature to this building is the stained-glass windows everywhere they really add some nice character to the once used care home. The exterior is very nice at all angles. We was not disturbed and nobody came inside.

I was expecting a grand-ish staircase here so I was a little disappointed by how basic the stairs were. Going by how the building looks on the outside you would expect a good staircase. However the fireplaces in two of the big rooms downstairs were rather grand and I really liked those however they were somewhat hidden behind builder equipment....

None the less, an unplanned good explore! :thumb
