Inspection carried out on 18 June 2013

During a routine inspection

People told us they "Liked" living in the home and that the staff were very "Caring" and "Attentive". One person said "I'm really happy here and get on with all of the staff" and another person said "I would never go anywhere else now". They told us they were happy with the care and support provided by the service and felt that the home was well run.

Our observations on the day showed that people were supported by staff in a way that promoted their dignity and independence. The atmosphere in the home seemed relaxed and staff were observed to be caring and supportive in their approach to people. They appeared to know them well and clearly understood their needs and preferences.

We found that the provider had addressed our previous concerns regarding staff training and supervision. Staff told us that they were able to access the required training in order to deliver safe and appropriate care to people who lived in the home.

We found that the service had completed the appropriate checks in order to maintain a safe and suitable environment for people but improvement is required with regards to monitoring and reviewing the care provided.

We found concerns that people's personal records were not always updated in order to accurately reflect their care needs and that personal information was not securely stored.
