What the care home does well
The home is small and friendly and meets the needs of the current service users. The home is clean and provides a comfortable and homely environment. Residents are helped to lead as normal a life as possible and enjoy going out into the community independently. Staff and residents also go out as a group using public transport for day trips which are planned together often on the spur of the moment. Residents said that they enjoyed the food and have a mixture of home cooked food, takeaways and meals out as people would who live in their own homes. Routines in the home are flexible and centred round the needs of the residents.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The care planning system has improved and includes more information about the identified needs of service users. Radiator guards are now fitted in areas used by service users. Basic staff rotas are now available. The staff recruitment system has improved. Application forms and reference request information is now available. There has been no new staff employed since the last inspection.
What the care home could do better:
The current statement of purpose and user guide must be available for inspection. Adult protection training must be provided for the staff. The senior staff must be prioritised.
