Inspection carried out on 28 September 2011

During a routine inspection

At the time of our visit the registered manager was on long term leave and the assistant deputy manager was on maternity leave. The provider was present during the day to assist us. The provider advised that a temporary assistant deputy manager had been recruited. Although the POVA check and Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check had not yet been received the provider had made the appropriate arrangements for supervised working which meant a more timely start date.

When we spoke to people some told us they had chosen this as their home, other people had been to other homes and felt this one suited them better and enjoyed living there. People told us they liked the rural location of the home, the views and walking in the garden.

When we arrived in the morning we observed that people were generally sitting in the lounges listening to music or chatting amongst themselves. In the afternoon following lunch, people were more active and were seen walking in the gardens, relaxing in the lounges or enjoying spending time chatting to staff and others.
