Overview

Inspection carried out on 25 February 2013

During a routine inspection

Edge Hill Care Home had four residents at the time of our inspection. We spoke with three of them and they all made positive comments about the home and the staff. One of them said that �You get a lot of freedom here� and explained that he made some of his meals, he went to local shops to buy his lunch and visited his relatives on the weekends. Another person told that the home is �Nice and comfortable� but he was planning to move on to a less supported environment as he felt he would be able to manage on his own.

We saw that people personalised their own rooms and were able to have visitors. We found that people were treated respectfully and saw that staff knew how to communicate with and support them.

We found that information on people�s needs and their care plans were available and were reviewed on a regular basis. The manager monitored the quality of the service through a number of regular checks to ensure that the service met people�s needs.
