Inspection carried out on 19 October 2013

During a routine inspection

People told us that staff help them with the things they find difficult to do themselves. One person told us �I like to do as much as I can, the staff support me rather than interfere.�.

We found that people�s individual needs were assessed and recorded. There was guidance for staff to follow to ensure these needs were met.

People we spoke with told us the food was very good and they had a variety of choices each day. One person told us, "They use wonderful ingredients, nothing wrong with the quality of the food." We found that people's nutritional needs were monitored when required.

The people we spoke with told us that the home was kept clean at all times. One person commented that �It always smells fresh here.�

We looked at the arrangements for the dispensing of medication and found that there was insufficient recording of the medication administered.

The staff were supported by the management to deliver care and treatment safely.
