People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People gave us consistently good feedback during our inspection. Typical comments included, “The food here is perfect, they over indulge us,” and “My room is lovely and I can’t fault anything about this house.” Relatives were equally positive and staff told us how much they enjoyed working in the home. One relative said, “I cannot fault anything here; my relative is so happy, they are well looked after and are looking twenty years younger!”

People felt safe and there were enough experienced and suitable staff to meet people’s needs. Medicines were well managed, and people were protected from the risk of infection and harm.

The service worked well in partnership with other professionals to make sure people stayed healthy. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Staff treated people with care and respect and ensured that people retained their independence as much as possible. People were given choices and staff knew how to communicate with people.

People enjoyed a varied activities programme that was based on their interests and hobbies and enabled people to feel a part of their local community. Care and support was personalised and organised to meet the needs of the people who lived in the home.

The service was well-led and the new manager had had a positive impact on the quality of the service. People, relatives and staff felt engaged in the running of the home and the provider gave managers good support to make any changes that were required.
