During a routine inspection

During our visit we spoke with three people using the service and asked them to tell us how they felt they were being cared for. Some of their comments included; �Of course they are looking after me� and �It�s a home from home here, I am very happy�.

People were provided with a choice of suitable and nutritious food and hydration to ensure their nutritional needs were met. We asked one person using the service if they liked the food and if they were given enough to eat. We were told; �More than enough, its good food�.

We saw that people�s care records contained enough information to show how they were to be supported and cared for. They also showed that people gave consent to

their care and treatment.

An inspection of the care records showed that the people had access to other health care services. We were also made aware of the systems that were in place to make sure that information was passed on when a person�s care was transferred to another service.

We walked around all areas of the home and saw that it was clean, warm and free from offensive odours. The maintenance of the home ensured that people using the service, staff and visitors were kept safe.

Arrangements were in place to ensure that people using the service were cared for by staff that were safely recruited and were properly trained, supported and supervised.
