What the care home does well
The office is very well organised. Policies and procedures are accessible to staff making it easy for them to work within them. Responsibilities are delegated to staff offering them career development and ensuring consistency. Staff know residents very well and are very professional in their manner.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The manager has done a dementia training course, as required at the last inspection. A new induction folder has been developed, following the Skills for Care guidelines. Seniors` meetings have been introduced which are attended by seniors form Woodlands and it`s sister home. This has shown improvements in both homes as skills are shared and the managers can support each other.
