Overview

Inspection carried out on 7 May 2013

During a routine inspection

When we visited Georgina House on 7 May 2013 we spent time with the three people who lived there and spoke with two staff members. Two of the people had very limited verbal communication. We observed through people’s facial expressions and gestures that they were relaxed in the company of staff. For example, people smiled when staff interacted with them. We observed people’s clothing was appropriate to suit the weather.

A person who was able to communicate with us said, “I like living here, the staff are kind to me”. The person also said, “I make my own breakfast and I help staff with washing the dishes. Staff take me shopping and I choose what food I like to eat”.

We found people were provided with sufficient food and drink to meet their needs. Where possible staff enabled people to maintain their independence and to prepare their own meals. People lived in premises that were adequately maintained. We found the garden was overgrown and staff supervision and appraisal was not consistent. Records relating to people’s safety and the environment were appropriately maintained.
