How this check was done

Our judgement

Recent improvements to the home have made 199 Doseley Road a nicer place to live.

User experience

Two people said, “Yes” they like their house. One person showed us some new bedding that they had purchased on the morning of our visit. One person was very proud to show us the recently redecorated lounge and in particular the new wide screen television.

Other evidence

Everyone we spoke with told us that the recent redecoration of the lounge and dining room had made a big impact on the look of the home.

We saw a wall chart showing ideas for colours and furnishings for the lounge. This was used to gain and share the views of the people living at the home. One visitor to the home said that the organisation had clearly invested money into the home. She added, “The home looks beautiful lately.” One person said it is now a, “Nice place to be”.

The manager and a senior staff member both said that bedrooms are next to be redecorated and on a tour of the home we saw some new bedroom furniture already in place.

People are able to access all parts of the house and safeguards are in place to keep people safe.

Social care professionals are aware that the refurbishment program is ongoing and that it is impacting positively on the people living at the home.
