Overview

Inspection carried out on 21 February 2013

During a routine inspection

We met four people who lived at Wheatley Lane and they told us they were well looked after. They were happy to show us around the home, particularly their bedrooms which were personalised to their individual taste. The home was clean and had a welcoming atmosphere.

We spoke with two support workers who told us Wheatley Lane was a nice place to work. They explained to us the care and support they provided and it was evident they knew people well. We observed positive interaction between the support workers and people living at Wheatley Lane.

We looked at the care records of two people and it showed they were involved in decisions about their care and the running of the home. When risks to people's health and welfare were identified, we saw risk assessments detailing how to reduce the risk and what to do if the risk became an incident.

We saw appropriate arrangements were made to ensure people were protected from unsafe and inappropriate care. This included reviews of care plans to ensure they were up to date and health and safety checks of the environment.
