Inspection carried out on 19 September 2013

During a routine inspection

At the time of our visit there were seventeen people living at the home. We spoke with two people who were able to share their views with us. We also talked to two members of staff.

During the afternoon the activities coordinator had arranged for people to work with coloured beads to make necklaces. One person told us that "I enjoy it here. I have made a necklace with pink and blue beads. I enjoyed myself."

One member of staff told us that "When I started I went through induction training. I have supervision sessions and I am very happy here."

As part of our inspection we observed staff helping people to eat their lunch. Staff were helping people at a pace which suited them and spoke quietly and respectfully to the person they were assisting.

During our inspection we found that hand washing facilities for staff were inadequate. We also found that the arrangements in place for the cleaning and disinfection of commode pans were unsuitable.
