What the care home does well
Relatives of the people living in the home said that they are made to feel welcome by the people working in the home and that they can visit when they please.The home has an enthusiastic team of people working within the service, who like doing their jobs and learning more about how to do it well. The people working in the home want to make sure that the people who live in the home receive good care. People being cared for have good access to professional medical staff and are able to access external services such as dentists, opticians, physiotherapists, chiropody and dieticians, so their health is looked after and they are kept well. The people spoken to are positive about the home and like living there. People living in the home expressed their satisfaction during this visit regarding the care given and the service received. Staff are hard working and do their best to meet the needs of those people living in the home.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Repairs and redecoration of the home have improved the living environment for people using the service, so they now have a safe and comfortable place in which to live. Staff training has got better and includes a good range of subjects that relate to looking after people with learning disabilities, so staff have the skills and knowledge to meet the needs of people living in the home. Evidence from this visit shows that the manager and staff have worked extremely hard to improve the service and meet the requirements and recommendations from the last two reports (November 2007 and April 2008). This has provided people who live in the home with a better service.
What the care home could do better:
The person who owns the home must make sure there are enough staff on duty throughout the day, who can work flexibly to meet the needs of people using the service, and ensure that individuals are supported to take part in activities outside of the home, including at weekends and evenings. This will improve the quality of life for those people living in the home. We would like to thank everyone who completed a survey or spoke to us during this visit. Your comments are very important to us and ensure this report includes the views of people who use the service or work within it.
