Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 20 April 2018

Morden Grange is a residential care home for eight people with assessed mental health needs. At the time of the inspection the home had full occupancy. The home is a large converted two storey house with all single rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms were situated on both floors. There was a lounge, kitchen and dining room on the ground floor. The home is close to local amenities and to Bolton town centre.

The provider has three small care homes in Bolton and there is a registered manager that oversees all three homes. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

At our last inspection we rated the serviced good. At this inspection we found the evidence continued to support the rating of good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and on-going monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.
