What the care home does well
The manager and staff appear to consider all aspects of care when attending to the needs of individual residents. Residents are brought into general conversation in the home and their opinions are constantly requested. The recordings maintained by the home are substantial, well recorded and regularly assessed by the home`s manager. Activities for the residents are regularly reviewed and enablers have been obtained to ensure each resident is provided with access to activities outside the home.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Since the last inspection the home has been adapted to increase the number of residents from five to six. The home has been redecorated, new lounge and dining furniture has been provided, the bathing facilities have been improved, a new kitchen and laundry have been constructed and an office is formed to secure the home`s records.
What the care home could do better:
The home has recently changed its method of dispensing medicines. The manager should ensure that staff are made aware of the correct procedures for recording medicines administered.
