Overview

Inspection carried out on 17 January 2012

During a routine inspection

We spoke with people who live in the home and some of their relatives and friends.

People who live in the home told us that they could make their own decisions about their day to day routines and could make some choices around the food they eat. People told us that food portions were very good although one person said they thought the range of meals offered could be monotonous.

All the people in the home commented on the care and friendliness shown towards them by staff. One person said �staff are brilliant�

Relatives and friends we spoke with commented positively about the homely and welcoming atmosphere of the home. They said the home was good at communicating with them about their friend/relative�s well being.

One person said they thought the home needed to improve the d�cor and furnishings in some areas of the home.
