Overview

Inspection carried out on 22 February 2012

During a routine inspection

We spoke with people who used the service and listened to what they had to say about their involvement in the care and support they received. We spoke with two people who told us they regularly go out into the community, either on their own or supported by care workers. We saw that care workers were attentive to people�s needs and feelings during our visit.

One person told us �This is the best place I have lived, and I�ve been in a few places.� Another said �I like it here, the staff are very good. I am very happy.�

People told us they were able to spend their day as they wished. One person told us they spend time sitting in the garden during the day, another person was involved in planting vegetables.

We asked people about the meals and people commented that the meals were good and they enjoyed them. We saw that people had been asked what choice they would like from the menu, and individual requests, such as �no gravy� were also recorded.

People told us about activities. They told us that a trip to the seaside was being organised, and that care workers also took different people into the city centre each week. They also told us that they could also arrange to go out individually with care workers. We saw information about activities was on display around the building.

People told us there was a religious service held once a month. A number of people continue to attend services at their own church, and representatives of the Roman Catholic church visit and provide communion.
