About the service:

Clarendon Manor provides accommodation and personal care for up to 35 people, some of whom are living with early stage dementia. The home is situated in a residential road in Whitnash. It is a period home which has been extended. The home is three storeys with bedrooms on the ground and first floor. There is lift access to the first floor. There were 34 people living in the home at the time of our inspection visit.

People's experience of using this service:

•People were protected from the risk of avoidable harm because staff had been safely recruited and they knew how to recognise and report abuse.

•There were systems to monitor the service to make sure it was safe for people and there were enough staff to deliver good quality care.

•Staff had the skills, training and support to meet people’s needs.

•Risks to people's health and well-being were assessed and well managed.

•People’s medicines were managed safely and in line with best practice guidelines.

•People were supported to see a health and social care professional such as a GP, if they needed to.

•People enjoyed their meals and had enough to eat and drink. Meals were prepared taking into account people’s cultural or religious beliefs and preferences.

•The home was warm, clean and comfortable. There was a friendly atmosphere and people appeared relaxed in their surroundings.

•Staff were motivated to provide compassionate care and improve people’s quality of life. They encouraged people to be as independent as they wanted to be and supported people to maintain their dignity and respect.

•Improvements had been made in the opportunities for people to engage in activities and they had more things to do during the day.

•There was a clear management structure that promoted person-centred values.

•Managers and senior staff monitored staff practice and carried out checks to ensure people received the care and support they needed.
