What the care home does well
Residents are supported in a family setting and they receive a good standard of care. Their care needs are detailed within care plans and schedules of their normal routines. Their health needs are met through being supported to attend appointments appropriately. Residents enjoy a full life with the providers taking account of their personal aspirations and interests. Activities and leisure interests are met with residents being supported in the community. Medication is safely managed and residents enjoy a good standard of food, eating with the family members.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Mrs Ridyard has taken steps to ensure that residents are aware of how to complain, should they have a need. She has also arranged the necessary training highlighted at the last inspection, to ensure that she is up to date on expectations of care providers. She has also conducted surveys as part of quality assurance to ensure that the home develops to meet needs of residents.
What the care home could do better:
Care plans should be dated and where possible provide evidence that residents are involved in their development. The complaints procedure should provide up to date contact details for the Commission. Building risk assessments should be updated to reflect the risk assessments that have been carried out.
