We used a number of different methods to help us understand the experiences of people using the service, because the people using the service had complex needs which meant they were not able to tell us their experiences.

We spoke to the relatives of three people, who told us they were involved with the care and treatment needs of their relatives. Relatives said that staff were kind and helpful. One relative discussed concerns about the number of agency staff that were used and how this could impact on care. Two relatives told us that the food had �really improved� with the new chef.

People using this service were not able to comment due to their dementia type illness. We spoke with two visitors to the home who were pleased with the care, treatment and support their relatives were receiving. They told us the home kept them informed of any changes in their relative�s care. When they visited the home they found the staff to be welcoming and supportive. They told us that they had visited during mealtimes and that the food was always well presented and people always seemed to enjoy the food they were eating. During visits to the home the visitors had found their relative�s bedrooms to be clean and tidy, that the home was kept in a satisfactory state of decoration and repair.

We spoke to 2 visitors who told us they had not been involved or consented to care, treatment and support for their relatives. They said that generally they were happy with the care, food and comfort of the home.
