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 was 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.

The inspection was unannounced and took place 18 August and 2 September 2015.

The inspection was undertaken by two adult social care inspectors on the first day and two adult social care inspectors and an inspection manager on the second day.

Prior to our inspection the provider completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give us some key information about the service, for example what the service does well and any improvements they plan to make.

Before the inspection we checked with the local authority safeguarding and commissioning teams and the local branch of Health watch, for any information they held about the service. We considered this together with any information held by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) such as notifications of important incidents or changes to registration.

During the inspection we talked with 27 of the people who used the service. People were not always able to communicate verbally with us but expressed themselves in other ways such as by gesture or expression. We spoke with five of their relatives. We talked with nine staff members as well as the registered manager, deputy manager and the home administrator.

On our first visit we looked at records including six care files as well as four staff files and audit reports. During our second visit we looked at a further five care files and reviewed the dependency levels of the people who lived in the home.

We used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us.

We looked around the building and facilities and with their permission, looked in some people’s bedrooms.
