We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection checked 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 was an unannounced comprehensive inspection carried out by two inspectors.

Before the inspection we looked at information we held about the service which included notifications of significant events and previous inspection reports.

During this inspection we spoke with 12 people living at the home and one visiting relative. We also spoke with five members of staff. The registered manager was available throughout the inspection. Some people were unable to fully express themselves verbally due to their dementia. We therefore spent time observing care practices in communal areas of the home.

We looked at a number of records relating to individual care and the running of the home. These included five care and support plans, two staff personal files and records relating to medication administration and the quality monitoring of the service.
