  • Are in safe, accessible surroundings that promote their wellbeing.

How this check was done

We reviewed all the information we hold about this provider, carried out a visit on 20/01/2011, checked the provider's records, observed how people were being cared for, looked at records of people who use services, talked to staff and talked to people who use services.

Our judgement

People who use services have safe and accessible surroundings that promote their wellbeing.

On the basis of the evidence provided and the views of people using the service we found the service to be compliant with this outcome.

User experience

People said that they were happy with their rooms and had everything that they needed. We saw that people's rooms were individualised and contained photographs and personal belongings.

There was a garden to the rear of the property, which was accessible and safe for people to use. People told us they sat in the garden when the weather was good. People who wanted to helped to do the gardening and we saw this on the day of the visit.

Other evidence

We looked around some areas of the home. The premises were safe, comfortable, airy and clean and provided sufficient light, heat and ventilation. There were two separate lounges and a conservatory on the ground floor. All the communal areas were used for various activities. The areas were accessible and safe for people. There were bathrooms and toilets on both floors. There were arrangements in place to protect people in case of emergencies. There were health and safety procedures such as fire tests and drills which happened on a regular basis. Records were kept of all the safety checks carried out.

The home had a programme of renewal and maintenance. There was on-going re-decoration and refurbishment.

The management and staff encouraged people to see Fassaroe House as their own home.
