Inspection carried out on 27 October 2012

During a routine inspection

The people living in this service were living with dementia and were unable to tell us about the quality of care they received. To enable us to be able to access people’s wellbeing we spent time sitting with them observing the care they received and the level of staff interaction with them.

During our inspection we observed that the staff were attentive to people’s needs. Staff interacted with people using the service in a friendly, respectful and professional manner. We saw that staff sought their agreement before providing any support or assistance.

Most of the people we saw were relaxed, engaged with their surroundings and interacted well with each other. If people became distressed or worried, staff attended to them quickly and acted to distract them or to offer them comfort.
