What the care home does well The staff works closely with outside agencies ensuring the best interests of the residents are being met. Comments from a district nurse included, " The staff are always helpful and provide you with up to date information on your patients. The staff act promptly on the advice we give them". Residents views are listened to and acted upon. The staff provide a comfortable, clean, homely and pleasant place to live. Visitors are made welcome at any time. The home provides palliative care (care for the dying) so residents have the choice, where possible to stay at the home rather than in hospital. Several of the staff had worked at the home for a number of years. This helps provide continuity of care to residents by people they know and can trust. What the care home could do better: At the time of the visit there were no recommendations made.

Care Homes for Older People Page 3 of 8 What we found: We, The Care Quality Commission (CQC) carried out an unannounced random inspection at Strathmore on the 12 May 2010. Several weeks before our planned visit, we asked the manager to complete an Annual Quality Assurance Assessment form (AQAA). The AQAA gives us information about how the home is meeting the needs of the people who live there, and includes future plans for further development. To help us gather further information about the service we sent surveys to residents and staff. We received completed surveys from four residents and five members of staff. Residents comments were positive and they indicated that they were happy living at the home. Residents confirmed they had been consulted about moving in to the home and they were provided with sufficient information about the service and facilities available. When asked what the home does well at, one said, They look after us well and the meals are good. I dont think there is anything they could do better for me. Staff comments were also positive about the management of the home and how the home was run. Staff confirmed that they receive up to date information about the people they are caring for, that the recruitment process was rigorous and robust and that they are given training and relevant updates relevant to their role. One said, We provide excellent care and we have excellent communication with families and outside agencies. The decision of the CQC this that the home is still providing excellent outcomes for those people living at the home.
