Annual Service Review Page 3 of 6 Service update since the last key inspection or annual service review: What did we do for this annual service review? We looked at all the information that we have received, or asked for, since the last key inspection or annual service review. This included the following information. The annual quality assurance assessment (AQAA) that was sent to us by the service. The AQAA is a self assessment that focuses on how well outcomes are being met for people using the service. It also gave us some numerical information about the service. Surveys returned to us by people using the service and from other people with an interest in the service. Information we have about how the service has managed any complaints. What the service has told us about things that have happened in the service, these are called notifications and are a legal requirement. The previous key inspection and the results of any other visits that we have made to the service in the last 12 months. Relevant information from other organisations. What other people have told us about the service. What has this told us about the service? The home sent us their annual quality assurance assessment (AQAA) when we asked for it. It was clear, comprehensive and gave us all the information we asked for. We looked at the information in the AQAA and our judgement is that the home is still providing a good service and that they know what further improvements they need to make. Since the last inspection, the service has kept us well informed regarding changes and developments in the home. Six people living in the home told us that they receive the care and support they need and that staff are available. Generally, people felt that staff listened to them, and people felt confident that the home makes sure they get the medical care they need. The majority of respondents felt that activities met their needs and most people said that they usually like their meals, with one person telling us this was always the case. People said that the home is clean and fresh. A relative told us that the home has a warm and homely atmosphere with caring staff. A person living at the home said that the home encourages us to maintain our interests and hobbies. Staff told that the provision of activities had improved. We received comments from six staff members; they told us that it was a good place to work with good team work and good standards for the people living there. They confirmed that they were kept up to date with training and that there were appropriate staffing levels, although one person worried that sometimes staffing levels could impact on residents choices as to when they had a bath. Several staff felt a garden area would really benefit the people living at the home. The AQAA shows us that the provider is committed to providing access to outdoor areas of the home. A district nurse and a GP told us that the home provides a good standard of care and works well with them, with one person commenting that the home has a friendly environment. The home continues to let us know about things that have happened since our last key inspection and they have shown that they have managed issues well. They work well with us and have shown us that their service continues to provide good outcomes for Annual Service Review Page 4 of 6 the people who use it. What are we going to do as a result of this annual service review? We are not going to change our inspection plan, and will inspect the service by 4/10/10. However we can inspect the service at any time if we have concerns about the quality of the service or the safety of the people using the service.
