People should be cared for in safe and accessible surroundings that support their health and welfare (outcome 10)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are in safe, accessible surroundings that promote their wellbeing.

How this check was done

Our judgement

People are provided with a safe home, which is designed to meet their holistic needs.

User experience

“I like my room; my family put up all my pictures to make it cosy”.

“I love all the lights in this room (sensory room), I come in here to just sit and relax”

We toured the premises with the manager, as well as making other observations during the review. We joined a resident enjoying a one-to-one reminiscence session in the sensory room, which was specifically designed to provide a quiet and relaxing environment.

Other evidence

We noted that the premises were well maintained to promote the safety of older people with physical health problems, and older people with dementia. The building had good lighting and ventilation, and was heated at a comfortable temperature to reflect the external weather conditions. People could take part in social activities not on their floor by using the passenger lift. Portable equipment was safely stored to ensure that it did not create a trip hazard.
