Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 19 June 2019

About the service: Radway Lodge is a residential care home that was providing personal and nursing care for up to 15 people aged 65 and over. 13 people lived there at the time of the inspection.

People’s experience of using this service:

People were supported by staff that were caring, compassionate and treated them with dignity and respect. Staff knew about people’s life history, personal circumstances, their preferences, interests and communication needs.

People received person centred care from staff who developed positive, meaningful relationships with them. Radway Lodge provided a friendly, welcoming and peaceful environment for people and visitors.

People and relatives said the service was safe. Staff demonstrated an awareness of each person's safety and how to minimise risks for them. They were supported by staff with the skills and knowledge to meet their needs. Staff had regular training and felt confident in their role.

People were supported in the least restrictive way possible; the policies, systems and culture in the service supported this practice.

People were encouraged to socialise and pursue their interests and hobbies, although some people said they would like to have more to do and wanted to go out more.

Care plans were detailed and up to date about people's individual needs and preferences.

People's concerns were listened and responded to. Accidents, incidents and complaints were used as opportunities to learn and improve the service.

The service was well led. People, relatives and professionals gave us positive feedback about the quality of people's care. They said the registered manager was approachable, organised, and acted on feedback. Quality monitoring systems included audits, observation of staff practice and regular checks of the environment with continuous improvements in response to findings.
