During a routine inspection

People told us they were happy living in the home, they told us there were plenty of activities and they liked the staff. We observed that interactions between people who lived in the home and the staff team were positive and people told us they felt safe in the home.

We saw that care planning systems took into account the views and wishes of the people who lived in the home. People's wishes and choices were recorded and staff told us how they respected these.

People were supported by adequate numbers of staff who had received training on the safeguarding of people. However the manager was on call to the home seven days a week and the provider may wish to note that this may impact on their ability to perform their role.

There were monitoring systems in the home to ensure people received the appropriate care although the formal quality assurance system had not been utilised over the last year.
