What the care home does well
Positive comments have been received from carers with one person writing that she has `always been pleased with the care given to her son`. There are a number of `thank you cards displayed within the home containing similar remarks. A guest said that the staff in the home were `very good`. Although guests only spend a short time in the home the staff were familiar with individual guest`s needs and appeared to have developed good communication with both carers and day services. Recording and paperwork was found to be good as were the management systems. The staff that were spoken with had a good understanding of the needs of the guests and of their roles within the home.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The manager has made sure that information about the recruitment of staff is stored in the home. The service user guide has also been reviewed to make it easier to use and the shower facilities have been adapted for easier use by guests with physical disabilities.
What the care home could do better:
The servicing and periodic inspection of gas and electricity needs to be carried out and accurate records kept at the home. The medication systems within the home, whilst on the whole being satisfactory, should be reviewed to ensure all medication being brought into the home is counted.
