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
People who live here say staff are nice, polite and respect their privacy. Visitors are welcome and there are no restrictions on this. People who live here can choose whether or not to join in activities. A variety of healthy food is offered and people can choose what to eat.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The menus provided now reflect the food being offered on the day so as not to confuse people. Records are now stored securely.
What the care home could do better:
Several areas have been highlighted for improvement as a result of this inspection. The home must appoint a permanent manager who is suitable to apply for registration with the commission. The issue of odours related to incontinence must be addressed. Staffing levels must reflect the needs of the people living in the home and must be maintained at a safe level at all times. Staff need to have a full and comprehensive induction programme and receive regular supervision to ensure they are competent to meet the needs of people living in the home at all times.
