Inspection carried out on 4 July 2013

During a routine inspection

In this report the name of Mr. Amos Boyede appears as a registered manager for this location. Mr. Boyede was not in post and not managing the regulatory activities at this location at the time of the inspection. Their name appears because they were still a Registered Manager on our register at the time.

We found that staff at Ashness Two care home encouraged people to be independent and provided a good service. People told us that staff supported them, their views were listened to and they were learning to be independent so that they could eventually live more independently. We found that people's mental and physical health needs were assessed and met.

People who use the service were protected from the risk of abuse, because the provider had taken reasonable steps to identify the possibility of abuse and prevent abuse from happening.

People were protected against the risks associated with medicines because the provider had appropriate arrangements in place to manage medicines.

People were cared for by staff who were supported to deliver care and treatment safely and to an appropriate standard but the lack of experience of some staff meant that their knowledge of mental health was limited.
