What the care home does well
Service users spoken with, and those who responded by survey, said that they are treated well by staff and they could do what they wanted to each day. Five families, who responded by comment card, said they were satisfied with the overall care their relative received. Specialised care and support is provided on a one to one basis and each service user is allocated a team of staff who provide consistent care. A person centred approach is promoted and communicated throughout the service. This ensures each individual is supported in this way. A wide range of professional expertise is actively used in order to support and maintain each service user`s lifestyle, health and well being.
What has improved since the last inspection?
Each service user now has an agreed and costed contract. This ensures service users are aware of the aims, objectives and philosophy of the home and the services and facilities it has to offer. Historical information has now been removed from the care files and stored securely. This ensures only current/relevant information is contained within each service users plan. Where possible, service users are supported to develop their own care and support plans. These are now signed and dated by them. Fire safety within the home has now been improved. This helps to ensure the welfare and safety of service users and staff. The collation and storage of all information within the home has been significantly improved. This helps to ensure an efficient and accountable service for all stakeholders.
