Inspection carried out on 11 May 2012

During an inspection in response to concerns

At the time of this inspection there were 55 people living at the service.

People using the service told us,

�I am 82 and have a good life. We are very well looked after here. They have worked hard to improve my health�.

�The staff are wonderful. I enjoy the food; there are always choices�.

Relatives told us,

� Everybody seems very helpful. They get a good selection of entertainers and get people out and about�.

�The carers are marvellous, absolutely. I have a good rapport with staff and can have a laugh with them�.

All of the people that we spoke to were pleased with the quality of the service.

Some of the people living at Ryedale Court were not able to tell us their views due to having complex needs. We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a specific way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us. Our observations demonstrated that people were positively supported.

During a routine inspection

We visited Ryedale Court Nursing Home over three days in January 2011. We talked to those people who were able and happy to talk to us. We also talked to a significant number of relatives and visitors.

We received many positive comments from people living in the home and their relatives. A few suggestions regarding how the service could be improved were made, such as new social activities and the need for staff to gain a more in depth history of people admitted to the service with dementia.
