What the care home does well
The home has a good record of supporting service users in a way that reduces the incidence of relapse and also has a good record for rehabilitating service users and moving them on to independent living. The latter was also supported by comments from the service users. Supervision sessions exceed the six sessions required under the standards by almost double. In addition to normal staff supervision records, additional brief supervision sessions also occur and are recorded. Bedrooms were assessed as exceeding the minimum size standard at the last inspection. See also service user survey results in the summary above.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The service users guide now contains the views of the service users. This will help potential new service users know how other service users feel about living at this home. Care plans now record actions required so that it can now fully function as a working document. The results from user/relatives satisfaction surveys has been collated so that this information can now be included in the quality assurance system.
What the care home could do better:
The home needs to find ways to maintain a minimum of 50% of staff with a NVQ2 qualification or equivalent. This is needed to ensure that at least half the staff are appropriately trained.
