During an inspection looking at part of the service

None of the people staying at the home were in when we visited. We joined a staff meeting and we spoke individually with the manager, two senior support workers, two support workers, a kitchen assistant and caretaker.

At our previous inspection in January 2013 we found some people's care records were not helpful because it was not possible to tell if information in people's records was current and accurate. The provider told us how they intended to improve their record keeping so people would not be at risk of unsafe care. At this visit we found records had been improved and were completed and maintained in a consistent way. All documents were signed and dated. Staff we spoke with were confident they and their colleagues were up to date with the content of records.

We looked at how people�s medicines were managed. We found there were good systems for ensuring people�s medicines were safely looked after. Written plans made sure people received their medicines in ways that met individual needs and preferences. Staff always checked with people�s families or GPs if there had been any changes in prescription since their previous stay.

We looked at how the home was kept clean. All the communal rooms and areas, and bedrooms we saw, were very clean. Staff took a pride in this. The manager had systems to keep a check on cleaning being carried out to a high standard.
