Inspection carried out on 10 October 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with two relatives and one person who lived at the home who told us they were happy with the home. One relative told us that their relative: �called the place their home� and one person told us �I am happy here everything is fine.�

We looked at the people�s care records and found they provided assessments and clear guidelines for the staff to enable them to support the people in their care.

All the relatives and people we spoke with told us they were part of the care planning process and they regularly attended care reviews and best interest meetings. We found that all staff we spoke with were knowledgeable about the Mental Capacity Act (2005) and the issues of consent and had received training.

We found that the home managed medicines appropriately and had systems in place to ensure the secure storage and safe administration of medicines.

We found the home was of a suitable design and layout for the needs of the people at the home and that it was warm, clean and secure.

We saw the home had a complaints procedure which was accessible to the people at the home. One person told us that when they had raised concerns they had been dealt with to their satisfaction.
