The home is situated in a quiet rural area near the village of Brockley, beside the local church. The gardens are secure for service users to walk in.

Additional costs are charged for toiletries, hairdressing, newspapers and chiropody. Care Homes for Older People Page 3 of 8 What we found: We visited the home to meet with the owner Mrs Cecilia Groves and the registered home manager Mrs Christine Talbot. The reason we did this was because of concerns that had been raised by the district nurses about pressure area care, the high incidence of pressure sores and the high level of care needs that four residents living in the home had. For this inspection we have only looked at these issues. Those who require a fuller report about the quality of care and the service delivered by Brockley Court Home, should read the full inspection report dated 1 July 2009. We had already been told that the district nurses had completed healthcare assessments for these four residents in April 2010. However, they had not shared the outcome of these assessments with the home. The home manager was therefore not made aware that a referral to the local authority for review of care placement was necessary. The manager informed us that re-assessments of healthcare needs have now been re-done again and none of those residents now require nursing care. It is therefore appropiate for them to remain living at Brockley Court, for as long as the home is able to meet the individuals needs. The manager clarified the situation about the number of pressure sores, and we were advised that some were wounds that were not sustained because of pressure. The district nurse had been asked to visit residents as and when necessary, to provide equipment to aid comfort, and had retained responsibility for meeting the residents healthcare needs. We were told that the manager and staff team had tried to advocate on behalf of residents, on a number of occasions when they had thought a particular treatment regime was not tolerable. The manager also gave examples of actions they had taken to aid residents comfort and improve the integrity of their skin. We are assured by our visit and conversations with the manager, that the appropriate care and support is provided for each resident living in the home.
