Inspection carried out on 7 October 2012

During a routine inspection

During our visit we spoke with the three people who lived in the home. Two people did not talk to us about what it was like to live in the home but we observed their interactions with staff and others to assess their well being. We spoke with one staff member and the owner.

We looked around the home and found that it was clean and hygienic. We examined the care files belonging to the three people who lived in the home and found that they were up to date and reviewed as people's needs/wishes changed.

People told us, and we observed, that they were happy living in the home and had their own personal routines and activities. We found that people were involved and supported to make decisions about their care and support needs and these were well met by the staff team. The person who talked to us about life in the home said �everything�s all right� and the staff were "nice". People saw healthcare professionals on a regular basis or when they needed them.

Staff were friendly and respected people's rights to privacy, dignity, and independence. There were enough staff on duty to meet people's needs with additional staff available when required. Staff said they had received training to enable them to carry out their roles competently.

There were effective systems for safeguarding people from abuse and legal safeguards, which protect people unable to make decisions about their own welfare, were understood by staff and used to protect people�s rights.
