During a routine inspection

People who were able to speak with us liked living at Summer Wood. One told us, "I am very happy here." Another said, "The staff are all lovely, X is like a mum to me."

We examined all the care plans and observed staff interaction with people and found that people expressed their views and were involved in making decisions about their care and treatment.

We looked at medication at the home and found that there were robust systems in place to ensure the safe acquisition, storage, administration and disposal of medication.

Staff we spoke with told us they felt very supported in their roles and enjoyed working at the home. One said," The best thing is the friendly atmosphere. It's not like being at work." Another said, "We laugh a lot. There is a lovely group dynamic."

We examined quality assurance records and systems and found the provider had an effective system to regularly assess and monitor the quality of service that people receive.
