What the care home does well
An examination of an initial assessment pro forma showed that all the information recommended in the National Minimum Standards for Care Home`s for Younger Adults is available. This allows for a good assessment of the needs of potential service users and would be a useful tool in reaching a decision as to whether these needs could be met at the home. Staff report that the home has positive relationship with neighbours. This helps to ensure the service users are recognised a members of the local community. There are no restrictions on visiting times and contact with family, where applicable, and contact is encouraged. Records show that service users are supported to attend healthcare appointments and have access to health care services. The home is clean and tidy, though there are now some areas that require attention.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Two service users have received new wheelchairs and new specialist beds. There has been an improvement to some areas of record keeping at the home although it is disappointing to note that there remain nine outstanding requirements following the last inspection. The home has a new acting manager who informs she is committed to this service and the quality of care given to service users.
