People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People felt safe and were treated with kindness and compassion. Risks associated with people's care needs and the environment had been assessed and staff were provided with information on how to support people safely. Some risk management plans needed to be more detailed.

Overall, people's medicines were managed safely and stored securely. We noted some minor improvements to records were needed and the registered manager addressed these at the time of our visit. There were enough staff on duty to meet people's needs. Staff had received training and support to enable them to carry out their role safely. People were protected from abuse by staff who had received training and were confident in raising concerns. There was a safe recruitment process in place to check staff were suitable to work with people who may be vulnerable.

The premises were very clean and well maintained. Cleaning and infection control procedures had been updated in line with COVID-19 guidance to help protect people, visitors and staff from the risk of infection. People had access to the equipment they needed. The gardens were attractive and accessible and there was garden furniture for people to use in the better weather.

People and relatives had confidence in the registered manager and management team. They told us the service was well managed. Staff were positive about the management team and the registered manager demonstrated good knowledge of people's needs. They showed a commitment for providing a person-centred quality service.
