Inspection carried out on 22 November 2013

During a routine inspection

There were two people living at Woodmancote Manor. They are sisters and were cared for by their foster sister who lived with them in the family home. The sisters have been part of the family for over 40 years and were considered family. As well as being supported by the manager and her husband two support workers were employed to assist. It was very evident that warm relationships were built on a caring relationship, trust and knowledge of the people being supported had been established.

During our inspection we spoke with the two people who were living at the home. We saw that they were relaxed in the company of the staff. One sister told us the staff were "nice" and "are caring, patient and I like them". This person told us "this is our home, we are very happy here".

We also spoke with the two members of staff who felt the home was "a great place to be" and "it�s not really like a job. I enjoy spending time with X and X�.

We looked at the care records for both of the people living at the home. We could see that they were supported to make decisions which affected their life.

Records were comprehensive and detailed the health and social care needs of each sister and showed how any possible risks were minimised. Records were kept under review and were updated when required.

The home was comfortable, homely and well furnished.
