Other evidence

The service provided a homely environment for people to live in. There is a communal sitting room and a conservatory that provides a pleasant area for people to use, which overlooks well maintained gardens. The home was decorated with Christmas decorations, which people using the service had been involved in making.

People have their own bedrooms, which they can personalise to their choice. Most bedroom rooms had their own private bathroom and en-suite facilities. Separate assisted bathrooms were also available. A Stannah Stairlift has been installed for people to be able to access the second floor easier.

Some refurbishment has taken place. Radiator covers have been installed to ensure peoples safety. Although we noted that some radiators were uncovered in some of the communal areas. The provider said that these are to be installed shortly. We were also informed that the landing carpet was also being replaced.

We saw some records, which demonstrated that regular servicing and maintenance of equipment takes place. Fire drills take place and fire equipment checks are carried out.The service employs an external company to undertake their health and safety audits.
