What has improved since the last inspection?

What the care home could do better:
To ensure that the home is accountable for the declared services a written contract between the care home and service users should be developed and sets out the terms and conditions of residency, service provision and the rights and responsibilities of both parties. An initial plan of care should be developed at the point of admission (or shortly afterwards) to ensure that staff have sufficient details to ensure that all care needs are adequately met. The registered manager should complete the Registered Managers Award within an agreed timescale to ensure the skills and competencies for managing the home are maintained. To ensure that the home is meeting its stated aims and objectives a formal and effective quality and monitoring system should be introduced.
