Overview

Inspection carried out on 10 May 2012

During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We were able to talk with most people but due to communication difficulties with some of the people they were limited in what they could tell us. We spent some time with them and observed their lifestyle and interactions with the staff and other visitors.

One person said "there is an inter-joining door upstairs which have no codes on them. [One of the people living in the home] goes up and opens the door and goes into my room and shreds my things. I'd like a lock on the door so that I can save my things." He goes on to say that, "if I wanted to go out I couldn't if there were only two staff. No choice."

One person said "I spend my day on my i-pad. Sometimes I go for a walk when my physiotherapist comes. She used to come once a week. It's now been two weeks since I went out for a walk. " (The physiotherapist was on holiday) "I can't go in the car at the moment. They have found a seatbelt for me so hopefully I can get that and go out. I�d like to go out if the weather was better."

Another person said, "I like it here and I like the staff. �I spend a lot of time in my room watching TV."

One of the people living in the home commented on the staff changes, he said "people don't know who is supporting them from one afternoon to the next."
