What the care home does well
Prospective residents are fully assessed prior to admission assuring that the home can meet their needs. The residents each have a contract which stipulates the terms and conditions of their residency. Following admission comprehensive care plans and risk assessments are developed. The health and personal care needs of the residents are clearly identified and monitored. A local GP completed a comment card and all was positive about the care provided at the Home. The residents are enabled to take appropriate risks and are encouraged to discuss any concerns with nominated key staff. The residents (where able) plan their activities together with the staff and individual lifestyles and routines are respected. Complaints and Protection of Vulnerable Adults concerns are addressed appropriately. The residents are protected by safe staff recruitment procedures and supported by a well-trained and supervised staff team. The facilities in the Home are domestic in style and afford the residents with a comfortable, homely environment. The staff were very helpful and constructive throughout the inspection. Comment cards sent directly to the Commission were very positive. Quotes taken from those are detailed below: `Carers do very well for me, I am very happy here` `I have freedom in the home and can make all my own decisions` `Staff always speak nicely to me, they help me shower.
