Overview

Inspection carried out on 8 December 2011

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We carried out this review to check on the care and welfare of people using this service.

We spent some of our time watching what was going on in the home to help us understand what it was like for the people living there. We saw that there were good relationships between the staff and the people living in the home. Staff were friendly and respectful when speaking to people. They were able to communicate effectively with people.

We spoke with some of the relatives of the people living at the home. Their comments included:

�Quite happy with the home.�

�I am very happy, good staff always ready to answer questions.�

�Care second to none.�

People were able to have a choice of food. Any specific diets were catered for, for example, medical diets. The way staff were serving people�s meals could be improved to ensure people can enjoy their food.

We saw little evidence of any social activities taking place in the home.

There was a well trained, stable staff team at the home which was good for the continuity of care of the people living there.
