Overview

Inspection carried out on 13 March 2013

During a routine inspection

During our visit, there were eleven people living in the home. People that we spoke with told us they were happy with the care and support being provided.

Comments included. �It�s very nice here and the people who care for us are lovely. The food is very good and is always well cooked too.�

There were care plans in place that included people�s individual needs and wishes. The plans also contained clear information regarding staff supporting people�s emotional wellbeing.

The home�s staff worked with a variety of healthcare professionals including local doctors and district nurses. We saw that people also had access to specialist care when required.

We spoke to staff and reviewed records which showed us that people were protected from abuse and their care was planned and delivered in a safe manner.

People were protected by there being a robust staff recruitment and selection process in place.

There were processes in place for the provider to audit and record the standard of care being provided.

A family member who visited the home regularly told us. �I am so glad we chose this home. There are very good staff and as it is a small home, my mother interacts well with everyone.�
