Overview

Inspection carried out on 3, 7 January 2013

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

When we visited the home on 30 and 31 August 2012 we saw that that an individual approach had not always being taken by staff when caring for people. When we visited on 3 and 7 January 2013 we found that improvements had been made. Staff had received training in person centred planning and had involved people with their care. A positive change was seen in some of the practice with staff openly promoting people�s independence. Although we found improvements had been made with more in house activities offered, we did not see that all people had been offered regular access to the local community.

At our previous visit we found that care plans did not always have up to date information for staff to follow. At this visit we found that improvements had been made. We found that some risk assessments would benefit from further development to provide more clarity.

Staff we spoke with had a good understanding of people's needs and had supported people appropriately. We found improvements had been made in the way staff had been trained to support people�s needs and that they had received supervision more regularly.

At our previous visit we found systems in place to assess and monitor aspects of the quality of service that people received had not always been effective. At this visit we found that improvements had been made for people's care to be monitored regularly, We found that further development of a system to audit areas such as risk assessments was needed.
