What the care home does well
The surveys were generally positive and people gave some very good feedback about the way the home supports people in their everyday lives. The manager ensures that potential service users` needs are assessed before they move into the home. All service users have a support plan in place which is individual and detailed and staff are aware of individual needs. Service users choose what they want to do, where they want to go, what they want to eat and other everyday choices. Relationships with family or friends are supported by staff. Healthcare needs are met and service users can make choices in this area, for example, as to the gender of the person providing care. The home was purpose built and bedrooms are larger than national minimum standards with all the necessary equipment in place. Service users personalise their rooms. There is a training programme in place and a high number of staff have qualifications in care. Robust recruitment procedures are in place and new staff `shadow` other staff for two weeks. The home is well run and health and safety procedures are adhered to, with equipment being regularly maintained.
What has improved since the last inspection?
