Overview

Inspection carried out on 5 January 2013

During a routine inspection

We spent the day with seven of the eight people living at the home and two members of staff. People were very happy to see us and remembered us when we visited them in February 2012. They wanted to spend time with us and tell us all their news since our last visit.

It was a positive visit and we could see that people were well cared for, supported and loved. We were invited to have lunch, we spoke with people all day and we were asked to play console games.

The two staff members were available throughout the day and both were very knowledgeable about people in their care, the policies, procedures and systems in place to ensure the continued smooth running of the home. They told us that a newly appointed manager would be commencing induction in January and that in the meantime the homes team leader was acting up so that people felt supported and continuity of care was maintained.
