During a routine inspection

Overall from the evidence we reviewed we found people were supported and assisted to have their needs met in a manner which ensured their safety and well-being. The home provided personal and nursing care to people and was able to support them at the end of their lives.

People's dignity and privacy were respected in the home. All people spoken with were pleased with the care they received and felt staff treated them with respect. One person told us "I am very satisfied. If I have to come into a care home I couldn�t be in a better one.�

People were supported to be as independent as possible and to enjoy the time they spent in the home. We saw there was an emphasis in care plans on what people could do for themselves and the help they required to maintain their daily living skills. Staff made adjustments to the care they provided and the person�s daily routine so they could live as comfortable a life as possible.

People lived in an environment that was safe and attractive. The surrounding grounds were accessible and attractive and contributed to people�s welfare.
