Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 23 November 2019

About the service

Canwick Court care Centre is a ‘care home’. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as a single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection. It provides accommodation for older people including people living with dementia. The home can accommodate up to 30 people. At the time of our inspection there were 22 people living in the home. Accommodation is provided in two units, including a unit for people living with dementia.

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

There was a process in place to carry out quality checks. These were carried out on a regular basis.

The home was clean, and staff understood how to prevent and manage infections. The environment was not consistently adapted to support people living with dementia.

There was enough staff to support people. Appropriate employment checks had been carried out to ensure staff were suitable to work with vulnerable people. Arrangements were in place to safeguard people against harm. People said they felt safe.

People enjoyed the meals and their dietary needs were catered for. This information was detailed in people’s care plans. Staff followed guidance provided to manage people's nutrition and pressure care. People were supported by staff who had received training to ensure their needs could be met. Staff received regular supervision to support their role.

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. However best interest decisions were not always completed.

People had good health care support from external professionals. When people were unwell, staff had raised the concern and acted with health professionals to address their health care needs. At the time of inspection people did not have access to a range of activities and leisure pursuits.

We saw evidence of caring relationships between staff and people who lived at the home. Staff were aware of people's life history and preferences and used this information to develop relationships. People felt well cared for by staff. Care records were personalised and were regularly reviewed.

The provider had displayed the latest CQC rating at the home and on their website. When required notifications had been completed to inform us of events and incidents.
