Overview

Inspection carried out on 1 December 2011

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We spoke to five people who live at the home and seven relatives. People told us that they were happy living there. One person said us, "It's my home, I am happy here".

People told us how they spend their day. They said that they get up and go to bed when they choose and are able to have their meals in the main lounge/dining room or their bedrooms if they preferred or were unwell. They told us that they enjoy the activities that take place. One person said, "I have company here and am not on my own as I was at home".

People told us that staff are respectful and helpful to them. They told us that staff generally assisted them when they needed it, although they sometimes had to wait to be taken to the toilet.

There is a need for some carpets, floor covering, furniture and other equipment to be replaced to ensure that they can be adequately cleaned to reduce the risk of cross infection.

The home has both double and single rooms and people can choose if they wish to share a bedroom. People are able to personalise their bedrooms to reflect their tastes and interests.
