Inspection carried out on 8 May 2013

During a routine inspection

A relative of a person who lives at the home told us "without Abell Gardens I would be lost" as the home was "lovely and caring" and "a little bit of paradise" for their relative.

We looked at the care plans in place and found they were person-centred and individual. The care was planned to reflect individual people's needs and risk assessments had been carried out. Plans were in place to deal with foreseeable emergencies.

The premises were suitably designed and maintained with systems in place to ensure regular safety checks were completed. In a previous inspection we found the bath was not in use. This has been replaced and we saw people who live at the home were able to use this facility.

The provider had suitable arrangements in place to recruit suitable staff. One recently appointed member of care staff told us the recruitment process was "very thorough".
