Overview

Inspection carried out on 19 August 2011

During an inspection in response to concerns

Some people who live in the home had dementia and we were not familiar with their way of communicating, so we were not able to gain their views. The five people we did speak with, over the two days that we visited, said they were happy with the care that they received. People told us that they felt safe in the home and that they were happy and comfortable living there. People said they were well cared for. Some people said they were involved in planning their care and had a care plan. They said that that if they were to raise any concerns these would be listened to and addressed. People told us that the home was comfortable and that the special equipment that they used, such as wheelchairs, hoists and walking aids helped with their independence and were comfortable. No one had any concerns about the safety of the equipment and they all said that staff were caring and competent when using the equipment. People also said that the cook was more than helpful and the food was very good. Nobody raised any concerns about the home when we visited. However, we did find some areas that need to be improved. These were mostly about people�s care plans, risk assessments and care records.
