About the service

Lakeside Residential Care Home is a purpose-built residential care home providing personal care to up to 40 people. There were 38 people living at the home at the time of inspection.

People’s experience of using this service and what we found

The provider’s auditing processes needed improvement to ensure records contained accurate information to guide staff and monitor people’s continuing care needs. We have made recommendations about this below.

We have also made a recommendation around the accurate recording staff training requirements to ensure staff have the relevant knowledge and training to meet the specific needs of the people living at the service.

People told us medicines were administered safely and staff told us they had received relevant medicines training.

People who used the service were happy with the care and support provided by Lakeside Residential Care Home. Most people and their relatives told us they felt safe and staff were very caring. Risks to people had been assessed and incidents analysed to ensure lessons were learnt.

People's care plans had been personalised and overall contained key information to guide staff however there was some information that was outdated and did not reflect staff’s current knowledge of people’s care needs.

People felt safe and protected from the risk of harm. Staff employed within the home had robust background checks in place, prior to starting work.

People spoke positively about the registered manager who they found to be supportive and responsive. The registered manager worked in partnership with health care professionals and local authorities responsible for monitoring people's care.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Staff and people who used the service spoke highly of the registered manager and how the service was run and organised.
