During an inspection to make sure that the improvements required had been made

We spoke to two people who lived at the care home. They were both satisfied with the service at Ashleigh House. One person said "I'd like a designated smoking room as they had one where I used to live" they also said "I have done my care plan with my key worker but it was a while ago". The person also said "I've had a review with my social worker but it was a while ago" and "I'm happy here, I'm not well enough to go anywhere else".

The other person we spoke with said they were �As happy as they could be. There were no major things wrong.� They felt that the staff looked after their needs and if they needed anything they would get it for them. They knew they had a care plan but were not involved in it through their choice. They also told us that they were going on an outing to the cinema that afternoon.

We previously visited Ashleigh House on the 27 September 2012. During this visits we found that care and treatment was not planned and delivered in a way that ensured people's safety and welfare.

At this visit we found that a review of all care plans had been initiated and the manager told us that of the eleven care plans five were to satisfaction. We examined six care plans and found that three were not fit for purpose. One person�s care plan had no risk assessments to address risks identified and reviews and updates had not been carried out. In the case of the other two people care plans and risk assessments had not been updated or reviewed.
