Inspection carried out on 3 February 2014

During a themed inspection looking at Dementia Services

Cosham Court can accommodate up to 47 people who require nursing care. On the day of our inspection 34 people were accommodated and one person was in hospital. Of these, we were told most, but not all people had a diagnosis of dementia.

During this inspection we spoke with twelve people, including those with dementia and one relative and five staff members including the manager. Comment cards were received from five people. One professional wrote, “I have never had any concerns about the home looking after individuals with dementia. They show compassion, a caring manner and treat people with respect and dignity”

People's needs were assessed and care was planned accordingly. All people spoken with told us they were happy with the care they received. They told us they felt able to exercise choices about their care and how they spent their days.

People were supported and had access to a range of services to ensure their overall needs were met. The manager had built good relationships with other professionals to ensure people received access to a range of health and social services.

The manager had an effective way of monitoring and assessing the service provided to people with dementia.
