Overview

Inspection carried out on 20 September 2012

During a routine inspection

People living at The Crescent were very positive about their experience of living at the home and no one had any complaints or concerns about how the home was run and managed.

People told us that they had good relationships with the staff, who were described as kind and helpful. They told us that the home was kept clean and warm. They told us that the standard of food was very good and there were activities arranged to keep people occupied.

People told us that they were involved in decisions about how they were looked after and that they could choose when they got up and when they went to bed. They told us that they could also choose to participate in activities or not.

There were some systems in place to monitor and review the quality of the service. However, where people were being nursed in bed, the home did not have systems in place to monitor and record when people were repositioned. Also the risks associated with the use of bed rails were not assessed and monitored.
