People should be cared for in safe and accessible surroundings that support their health and welfare (outcome 10)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are in safe, accessible surroundings that promote their wellbeing.

How this check was done

We reviewed all the information we hold about this provider, carried out a visit on 01/04/2011, checked the provider's records, observed how people were being cared for, looked at records of people who use services, talked to staff and talked to people who use services.

Our judgement

People live in a home that meets their needs. The home provides a safe environment for people to live in.

User experience

When walking around the home we saw a number of rooms that were personalised with people’s individual items such as photographs, plants and televisions that reflected people’s preferences. A number of people when asked said they were happy with their bedrooms.

Other evidence

The carpet in the lounge that is badly faded is going to be replaced and a date has been provided with regard to when this will take place. This will promote a homely atmosphere for the people who use the service.

At the previous inspection there were many items stored in the yard. These items were broken and awaiting disposal. They have now been removed. The area at the rear of the coach house has been fenced off. This ensures that people that use the service are not at risk from potential health and safety hazards.
