Inspection carried out on 10 December 2012

During a routine inspection

Roden Court was opened in July 2012. There are 40 flats available for older people to rent. There are several two bed flats for couples. On the day of the inspection, there were 28 people living in the block, with seven more due to move in before Christmas.

The care and support needs of people living at Roden Court are assessed by the local authority. The service is provided by care workers employed by One Housing Group, separately from the terms of the people�s tenancies. The range of support people received varied and included assistance with personal care and medication, preparing meals, help with shopping, assistance with managing their finances and cleaning the flats.

We inspected the service on the 10th December 2012. We looked at care records of a number of people using the service, staff files and other records relating to the care and support provided. We spoke with the extra care project manager, eight people using the service and five care workers. We observed care and support being provided in communal areas of the block.

None of the people we spoke with mentioned any concerns they had with the service. One person told us �it�s lovely here.� Another said �I�ve got all I really need.�

We had concerns over the provider�s management of medication. We noted that the provider had been working actively with the local authority commissioners to address the issues, but we have set a compliance action under the relevant outcome.
