About the service

White Rose House is a care home providing personal care to 45 people at the time of the inspection. The service accommodates up to 64 people in one building.

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

People told us they felt safe. One person said, “There’s always someone [staff] with you, the girls are excellent. I’m frightened of slipping, they give you lots of towels, they’ve been excellent with me, they helped me feel safe. Give [staff name] a gold star, they helped me have the courage to have a bath.”

Staff had a good understanding of how to safeguard people from abuse.

Person-centred care was promoted and people told us the staff knew them well and responded to their needs in a person-centred way.

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.

People told us staff were kind and sensitive. One person said, “Staff are kind, caring, they listen to you.” A relative added, “The carers are respectful, kind and caring.”

Person-centred assessments and care plans had been completed which reflected people’s needs, wishes and preferences. Staff knew people well and told us how they identified if people's needs changed or if they needed additional support.

Systems and processes had been reviewed to ensure the service was compliant with regulations. Although governance systems had improved we still noted room for further improvement as audit systems were not always robust enough.

Staff said they were happy working at the service. They said it had improved considerably over the last few months since the registered manager had been in place who was bringing stability and organisation to the service and support for them.
