Overview

Inspection carried out on 18 October 2012

During a themed inspection looking at Dignity and Nutrition

People told us what it was like to live at this home and described how they were treated by staff and their involvement in making choices about their care. They also told us about the choice of food and drink available. This was because the inspection was part of a themed inspection programme to assess whether older people living in care homes are treated with dignity and respect and whether their nutritional needs are met.

The inspection team was led by a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspector joined by a practicing professional. We spoke with seven people who lived in the home, one visiting relative and three staff.

People added that they were able to make choices in their lives and that staff supported this. For example, people were able to lie in bed in a morning. We saw there was a choice of menus available to people and people told us they liked the food in the home. They said �It is very nice, it is hot and well presented. �Additionally the quality assurance system included questions relating to the food provided in the home to ensure that people were satisfied with this.

People told us there had been �no suggestions of anything other than excellent care in the home.�
