Inspection carried out on 28 November 2012

During a routine inspection

People were consulted about their care and how that care was to be delivered. Where they did not have capacity to make decisions about their own welfare people who knew them best had been consulted and decisions made in their best interest.

We saw that care workers at Barn Park were attentive to people's needs and that people's personal and healthcare needs were being met. For example, personal hygiene needs, monitoring of risk and getting health care expert advice as necessary. Care workers knew people as individuals and there was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at the home.

Care workers were provided in sufficient numbers and they were skilled in the tasks which we observed, such as moving a person safely. There were detailed records of people�s care needs and how those needs were to be met. Medicines were handled safely by care workers where people could not do this for themselves.

The home had a system for managing any complaints and had responded to comments in that changes had been made for people as requested.
