What the care home does well
The home makes sure that residents health is looked after properly and they get any help they need from other professionals. The staff listen to and take notice of what the residents have to say about the home and the care they receive. Staff receive good training opportunities to make sure that they know how to give the best care to the residents. The home takes great care to keep the residents safe.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Everyone has a care plan, but they must ensure the social care element as well as the healthc are element is completed in the Bridgewell Centre. The residents have more to do and staff are developing more activities for them. The home is trying to find ways to make sure that more residents want to be involved in how the home is run.
What the care home could do better:
The home should make sure that all the residents have a written contract or terms and conditions agreement so that everyone knows what to expect. The home should make sure that everybody has a care plan. The home could make sure that staff record activities and reviews, so that everyone knows what has happened and when. The registered manager will ensure there is clarity with regard to her responsibilities, particularly with regard to the Bridgewell Centre.
