Other evidence

The home is a purpose built two-storey building that offers accommodation for up to 18 people. Accommodation comprises of all single en-suite bedrooms, communal lounges, dining rooms, toilets and bathing facilities. There is a passenger lift to the first floor and is accessible for wheelchairs throughout. Those bedrooms seen had been personalised with the individual’s belongings.

Due to recent issues the provider has been carrying out a review of the service offered at Church Walk. The managers told us that plans were being made to alter the environment so that facilities could be provided to support the development of rehabilitation services. This would include kitchen facilities which would be accessible to people living at the home. Staff support would be offered to promote and enable people to enhance their daily living skills so that they may move on to more independent living, where possible.

During our visit a random sample of servicing certificates were seen. Relevant checks had been completed.
