What the care home does well
The home continues to have an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Service users have a wide variety of activities and interests. The home supports and encourages each person to take part in everyday life activities. The service users are relaxed and comfortable within their home and staff members are thoughtful and respectful of each person`s wishes. Staff have built excellent relationships with individuals living in the home. When the inspector spoke to service users about living in the home positive comments on staff support, going out on enjoyable trips and a having a nice bedroom and food were made.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The courtyard has developed more and this was commented on by two of the service users. The issues with propping open a service users bedroom door has been sorted out with a devise to hold it open and shut it when the fire alarms sound. The manager has worked on the comments made by service users and their families in the quality audit and he has produced a plan to improve the home.
What the care home could do better:
The manager has been asked again to improve the care planning process in the home to make sure information on how people are supported is documented. The manager has been asked to put some more information in place to support service users with taking their medication.The home must also improve the records kept for staff before they come to work in the home to make sure that people who live in the home have the right staff supporting them. The manager has been asked to do this more than once.
