Overview

Inspection carried out on 15 August 2013

During a routine inspection

During our inspection we spoke with two care staff, the registered manager (referred to as the manager throughout this report).

We met all four of the people living in the home; due to their disability and communication needs we were not able to ascertain their views verbally. However, we spent time observing their care and support. We saw that they looked happy and relaxed. We observed staff interacting with them in a friendly manner and treating them respectfully. People who were able to, moved freely around the home and those that needed support were given it.

We saw that care plans were kept under regular review and had been updated to reflect the risks to people during the recent hot weather.

There were processes in place to ensure that medicines were stored and administered safely. Only trained and competent staff attended to this.

Staff told us they enjoyed their jobs and they thought the home was well run. They spoke highly of the manager who they said was �Brilliant� and "Supportive". Staff knew the people they supported well and showed a good understanding of their needs and preferences.
