What follows are excerpts from this inspection report. For more information read the full report on the next tab.
What the care home does well
The residents living in the home were unable to tell the inspector about their experiences there, but they appeared to be relaxed, comfortable and happy. Staff act in a supportive, caring and respectful manner and have an excellent knowledge of the residents. Activities are arranged according to the needs of individuals, these ranged from horse riding, swimming, to walks and shopping and much more. Carers are provided with clear and detailed information relating to individual needs and receive relevant training and support from Sense.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Decisions made on behalf of residents are better-recorded giving reasons why. It was recommended during the last inspection that additional medication training should be obtained for all staff. Since the inspection the CSCI Provider Relationship Manager for Sense has agreed that additional training is not necessary.
What the care home could do better:
There is no information given to relatives / care managers about how the use of the transport is monitored, to ensure that each person is charged fairly. By not providing this information it is harder for people to make an informed choice. This recommendation is repeated from the last inspection.
