Inspection carried out on 29 November 2013

During a routine inspection

There were 18 people living there on the day we inspected. We spoke with nine people, five staff members, the manager and registered provider.

Most people that we spoke with told us that they liked where they lived and that the staff were friendly and helpful. One person told us, �I do my own shopping and I cook my own food�. Another person told us, �I have been out today to see a friend I can do what I want. I would like a drink now but the kitchen is locked�.

People received their medication as prescribed by their doctor to ensure their health and well-being.

Some parts of the home needed improvements so that the home was comfortable, safe and pleasant for people to live in.

Recruitment processes were adequate and ensured that staff employed were suitable to work there which protected people from the risk of harm.

Monitoring systems in place to improve the service had not always been timely and effective.
