Inspection carried out on 25 June 2013

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We had carried out a visit on 19 April 2013 for a routine inspection and found the home to be meeting the needs of people well. We found the building was generally well maintained but we found that the downstairs kitchen, dining room and laundry arrangements were not designed or laid out in a way that provided people with a safe or comfortable environment.

On the return visit on 25 June 2013 we saw that the home had successfully made changes. Both the unsuitable washing machine and the drier had been removed and ordinary domestic machines had been installed. This meant there was now space in the downstairs kitchen for people to move around and sit at the dining room table safely and more comfortably.
