Overview

Inspection carried out on 28 January 2014

During a routine inspection

On the day we visited Genesis Residential Home there were seven people living there. We spoke with four people who lived at the home, the manager and a member of staff. We also spoke with two relatives of people who live at the home.

The home provides care and support for people with mental health needs.

People spoke positively about their experience of living at the home. One person told us, “I like it here. I get on well with others. Nice staff, look after me well.”

We saw that the home planned the services provided to meet individuals’ needs and that staff were available to help people when they needed it. Another person told us, “If I have a problem I go to the manager, he sees everything is sorted out. It’s a great place to live.” A relative of someone who lived at the home said, “I’ve been impressed with the home, my brother is well supported and they keep us up to date.”

We observed that home provided balanced and plentiful food and drink to people living at the home and menus showed a varied and nutritional diet. One person said, “I have a choice of dinner and pudding.”
