Inspection carried out on 16 July 2013

During a routine inspection

We spoke with the manager, six people living at the home, one visitor and five members of the staff team. There were 33 people living at The Crescent at the time of our inspection.

People and visitors that we spoke with were positive about the way the home was run and managed. No complaints or concerns were raised with us during our visit.

People told us that they staff were "kind and friendly", the food was good, the home was kept clean and there were organised activities to keep them occupied.

Before people received any care or treatment they were asked for their consent and the provider acted in accordance with their wishes.

We found that care plans accurately reflected people's needs and had been drawn up with their involvement.

Appropriate checks were undertaken before staff began work.

People were protected against the risks associated with medicines because the provider had appropriate arrangements in place to manage medicines.

The provider had suitable quality assurance procedures in place to manage the health and welfare of people living in the home. People were able to comment on the service provided.
