Inspection carried out on 16 February 2012

During an inspection in response to concerns

We carried out this review following concerns made to us about the cleanliness and the condition of people's clothing and the general cleanliness of the home.

We met with all 25 people living at the home and also spoke to four relatives. People who were able to communicate told us that they were happy living at the home. We saw that although the majority of people were appropriately dressed some people were wearing soiled or damaged clothing.

People spent the day as they chose. We saw that people got up and went to bed when they chose and were able to take part in various activities if they wanted to. We saw positive staff interactions with people living at the home.

People told us that they get the care they need and that staff call the doctor and other health professionals when they are needed. Relatives told us that staff let them know when their relative was ill and had been seen by a doctor. We found that care records need to be improved to ensure that records confirm this and that this is maintained.

We found that improvements were needed to the general cleanliness and comfort of the home. We found that furniture and furnishings were damaged and needed to be replaced. The required changes will make the home a nicer and safer place for people to live.
