Inspection carried out on 4 March 2014

During a routine inspection

Abbeyfield Lodge was registered for twelve people and eleven people were living at the home at the time of our visit. Three people told us about their experiences of living at the home. One person told us “it is a great place to live, the staff are brilliant”. We observed staff interacting with people and found that they were respectful and friendly. We also reviewed people’s records and spoke with staff and the manager. The staff and manager had good knowledge of people’s preferences, likes and dislikes and the best ways to meet their care and support needs.

We found that people had individual risk assessments and support plans related to these which were reviewed regularly. Staff coordinated care and support with other professionals in order to ensure people’s needs were met.

Staff records evidenced that they had regular training, supervision and appraisals. Staff told us they felt well supported working at the home. One staff member said “I really look forward to coming to work, I think we all do, it feels worthwhile but is fun too”.
