Registered Manager: Jane Roberts
Provider Name: Churchfields Care Home Limited
Care home beds: 35
Situated close to St Peter’s Church in one of the oldest and most picturesque villages in the area, Churchfields is a prominent home that, thanks to careful restoration, retains much of its charm and character.
Our extensive, peaceful, landscaped garden provides opportunities for our residents to be outdoors as much as possible. It is used daily as a comfortable area for residents to relax with family and friends, as well as to enjoy gardening and other social activities.
Life at Churchfields is centred on our residents, but there are many people who contribute to making life at the home so unique, and we include family, friends, and the Cassington village community in daily life wherever possible.
Our Lifestyle Support Co-ordinators are central to daily life at the home, and they work closely with residents and colleagues to develop a varied programme of activities and events throughout the year.
OverallRead overall summary
We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.
This inspection took place on 20 June 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of one inspector and an Expert by Experience. An Expert by Experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.
Before the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the service and the service provider. The registered provider completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We looked at the notifications we had received for this service. Notifications are information about important events the service is required to send us by law. We received feedback from three social and health care professionals who regularly visited people living in the home. This was to obtain their views on the quality of the service provided to people and how the home was being managed. We obtained feedback from commissioners of the service.
We spoke with six people and one relative. We looked at three peopleâs care records and three medicine administration records (MAR). The methods we used to gather information included pathway tracking, which is capturing the experiences of a sample of people by following a personâs route through the home and getting their views on their care. During the inspection we spent time with people. We looked around the home and observed the way staff interacted with people. We spoke with the provider, the registered manager, the deputy manager and seven staff which included nurses, care staff, housekeeping, maintenance and catering staff. We reviewed a range of records relating to the management of the home. These included six staff files, quality assurance audits, minutes of meetings with people and staff, incident reports, complaints and compliments. In addition we reviewed feedback from people who had used the service and their relatives.
