Overview

Inspection carried out on 23 May 2013

During a routine inspection

On arrival at the home we saw people were being involved in making decisions about their lives. For some people this involved getting ready to go out with their family members. In this way family relationships were being maintained. For others we saw they were being helped to decide their chosen activity for the day. We saw people were given choices as to how they wished to spend their time. People were assisted to give consent to their care and to their treatment. We spoke with one person who told us they had access to their own records when they, wanted to see them. They told us they regularly kept their own records as part of their right to confidentiality.

During our visit people were seen going out and returning from activities. We saw they looked happy and well cared for.

Two people told us they felt safe living at the home. There were a variety of documents in the foyer to help them if they needed more help or advice.
