Inspection carried out on 14 October 2013

During a routine inspection

There were systems in place for checking the safety and quality of the service. We saw that people living at the home were fully involved in the planning and cooking of meals and they were encouraged to be as independent as possible in the kitchen. One person was supported to have a vegan diet and the home enabled him to get specific foodstuffs for his diet.

Records were held securely and people had signed to show they were involved in their care plans and risk assessments. One person told us; �I love it here it�s a home from home�.

Staff members had a good knowledge of infection control procedures. We saw the environment whilst still being homely, had equipment available such as personal protective equipment and colour coded mops to reduce the risks from poor infection control, however we discussed with the registered manager that the laundry equipment was not adequate to address infection control regulations.
