What the care home does well
The atmosphere in the home was a pleasant and relaxed, and staff were friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was warm, comfortable, clean, and decorated and furnished to a very good standard. Residents and a relative who spoke with the inspector were particularly complimentary about the accommodation, and the staff. Their comments included: "There`s no smell, it`s always clean"; " It`s a lovely environment, bright and welcoming"; "It`s like home from home"; "It`s fantastic"; " Visitors are made welcome anytime, I pop when I like", and " I can`t praise the staff enough".
What has improved since the last inspection?
Some of the bedrooms on each wing, and three of the corridors, had been redecorated and re-carpeted, and vertical blinds had been installed throughout the home. A food storage area had been screened off as required following the last inspection by the commission.
What the care home could do better:
A requirement for the ventilation to be improved in the main kitchen, which had appeared on inspection reports since August 2004, remained outstanding. The ventilation in the kitchen is inadequate, and because of this it is very unpleasant and uncomfortable for the members of staff who work in the kitchen, particularly in the hot weather. The registered person must ensure that this matter is dealt with without further delay.
