What the care home does well
The Home and its parent company continue to strive for excellence in care practice. They meet, and often exceed, the National Minimum Standards. The home provides a high standard of person-centred care in a pleasant, tastefully decorated, homely and supportive environment. Challenging behaviour is very well managed. The home consults with the service users very well. There is a weekly meeting where they are reminded of their rights and responsibilities and agreements made about the day-to-day running of the home. The home provides a wide range of activities that are tailored to the individual needs and aspirations of the service users. Good relationships are maintained with relatives and supporters. There are very good staffing levels. Staff training is of an excellent standard and staff morale is high. The home is well managed and the company keeps up-to-date with new concepts in best care practice. There are excellent systems in place for the home and the company to monitor progress and continue to improve.
What has improved since the last inspection?
One of the service users has made such good progress in the home that he is now planning to move on to a supported living project within the next few months. The service users have all attended a six-day personal development course. The home continues to maintain the environment well. The organisational structure has changed to give the manager more responsibility. The company continues to improve the already high standard of training.
What the care home could do better:
The home met all the standards that were inspected at this visit. It has an improvement plan in place and is currently working to again improve the way it delivers person-centred care.
