Inspection carried out on 25 November 2013

During a routine inspection

There were five people living in the home when we visited. We spoke with five members of staff, three people who lived in the home and a relative who was visiting.

The home was bright and airy and the notice boards were covered in colourful pictures and photographs. We saw the individual activity planners of the people who lived in the home and saw that four people were busy with activities, including shopping for the evening meal with their key workers. One person was in the home completing �daily living skills�. This included changing their bed linen and cleaning their room. Another was due to return to prepare for a meeting with their relatives and healthcare professionals to review their planned care and treatment.

The relative we spoke with said that organisation within the home had improved since the new manager had been appointed and there was now a �very good staff team� and that they were �efficient and caring�.
