Care Homes for Older People Page 3 of 8 What we found: The last Key inspection on this service was completed on the 20th June 2007. This Random inspection visit was conducted over a period of 2 hours on the 10th June 2010. Prior to this inspection visit we assessed any information that we have received about the home and the information the service submitted in their Annual Quality Assurance Assessment that we had requested. The Annual Quality Assurance Assessment is a selfassessment by the service that focuses on how well outcomes are being met for people using the service. Care services are judged against outcome groups. They allow us to judge how well a provider delivers outcomes for the people using the service, rating them as Excellent, Good, Adequate or Poor. One overall judgment is made for each of the outcome areas. Not all outcome groups were assessed on this occasion and this judgment is based on the standards looked at during the inspection process. Further information about how we make our judgments on outcome groups can be found in the KLORA (Key Lines of Regulatory Assessment) publication on the commissions website. A number of surveys we sent out to staff members and residents were responded to with positive comments. What the care home does well: Residents are able to enjoy a full and stimulating lifestyle with a variety of options to choose from.
