During an inspection looking at part of the service

The inspection visit was carried out to check if improvements had been made following the previous review of compliance 12 November 2012. At the time of our visit there were 26 people who lived at Church House Care Home. During the course of the inspection we spoke with eight people who used the service and a family member. We found that improvements had been made to ensure that people received appropriate care in line with their assessed needs.

One person told us: �I�ve not noticed much change other than a few new faces but I�ve always found the staff to be okay.�

We saw that care plan details and fluid and hydration documentation had improved. We saw clear monitoring of people�s weights and that staff reported any change in people's appetite appropriately.

The Manager told us the home would be refurbished in the first wave of improvement plans from the provider Akari Care Limited and the refurbishments would commence in February 2013. Areas of refurbishment included general d�cor such as carpet replacements, equipment such as some new profiling beds, improvements to bathroom and laundry areas, sluice, garden pavements and new furniture. The Fire and Rescue service had revisited the home and were satisfied with the actions taken by the service to address fire drills and training.

Staff told us that there were sufficient permanent staff on duty to meet people�s needs appropriately and people we spoke with raised no concerns about their care.
