Inspection carried out on 3, 4 October 2013

During a routine inspection

Some of the people who lived in the home were not able to tell us about their experiences, so we observed the interactions between people and staff. People lived active lifestyles and could choose how they spent their time.

People were assisted to attend health care checks and community health professionals were involved to provide advice and support when needed.

We saw people looked comfortable and at ease in the home and with staff. There were procedures in place for staff to follow to protect people from abuse.

The home was maintained and checks were in place to make sure it provided a safe environment for the people who lived there. There was a maintenance and refurbishment plan in place. Some redecorating had commenced and work to refurbish the kitchen had been organised.

There had been some staff changes but there were sufficient staff to support the people who lived at the home. Training that the manager had identified the team needed was being organised. Staff were being supported and directed by a new manager to develop their confidence and skills to effectively meet the needs of the people using the service.

At the time of our inspection the provider did not have a registered manager in post.
