Overview

Inspection carried out on 11 February 2013

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We conducted an inspection of this service on 5 July 2012. The provider sent us an action plan following that visit telling us what they were going to do to achieve compliance where we had found shortfalls in the service. During this visit we found that improvements had been made. This meant people�s privacy and dignity was respected, their care needs were met and they were protected from risk of harm. Improvements in signage around the home meant that people were able to find their way around more easily. People were protected from risk of infection through the improvements in cleanliness in the home.

We highlighted some areas in the report which the provider may find it useful to note to make sure compliance is sustained.

People who lived at the home were experiencing dementia and were not always able to tell us about their experiences. We used a number of different methods to help us understand the experiences of people using the service. We observed how people interacted with staff and the management of the service. We saw the atmosphere in the home was calm and relaxed.

People we spoke with told us that staff were �very kind�. People told us they liked their meals at lunchtime.
