Inspection carried out on 26 October 2012

During a routine inspection

We carried out this inspection to check on the care and welfare of people. There were 28 people living at the home on the day of the inspection. We spoke with six people, one relative, two staff, the deputy manager, the home manager who was also the joint owner, and we spoke with the second joint owner.

We saw that people were well presented and wore clothes that reflected their own preferences, style, and gender. We saw staff promote people�s independence in different ways. We found that people were involved with their care planning and delivery. One person said, �I have seen my care plan, they go through it with us.�

We found that people�s care records provided an overview of people�s needs and preferences. We found that people were involved in a range of different activities throughout the day. One person told us, �I am very content here.�

We found that arrangements were in place to ensure that people were safeguarded from abuse.

We found that medicines were stored, recorded, and administered in a safe and timely manner.

We found that there were enough skilled staff to look after people�s needs. We saw positive interactions between staff and people living at the home. One person said, �The staff here are brilliant.�

We found that people knew how to complain, although all the people we spoke with did not have any concerns. One person said, �This place is good otherwise I would not have been here this long.�
