Overview

Inspection carried out on 10, 15 August 2012

During a routine inspection

We found there had been improvements at the home since the last inspection. A new management team had been appointed over the last twelve months. The manager and senior staff had conducted a review of how the home had been operating and had introduced a number of changes which had benefitted people using the service. We saw evidence of how care plans had been reviewed so as to ensure that they reflected the care and treatment choices of people living at the service. People told us that: "staff had asked how they wished to be supported". People also told us that: " staff had spoken with them when they had reviewed their care plans to ensure that they reflected their needs and dislikes".

The home had reviewed the nature of the activities it provided and recruited additional staff to provide activities. People told us that:" they like the activities and had been asked what activities they enjoyed".

We looked at all of the communal and some of the individual rooms at the home. There was a programme of redecoration and refurbishment which was ongoing. The refurbishment had resulted in an improved environment for people living at Euroclydon.

Staffing levels had improved at the home. There were additional qualified and care staff on duty following a recruitment process. The appointment of additional managerial staff had improved the levels of staff supervision, audits of care, and standards of record keeping.
