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 29 and 30 November 2016 and was carried out by two adult social care inspectors.

Our visit to the home on 29 November was unannounced. At that visit we focused on speaking with people in the home, their visitors, and the staff on duty. One inspector returned to the home on 30 November to look at records relating to how the home was managed.

During our inspection we spoke with 12 people who lived in the home and to three visitors to the service. We also spoke with four members of the care team, four ancillary staff and two members of the home’s management team. We observed care and support in communal areas, spoke to people in private and looked at the care records for six people. We also looked at records that related to how the home was managed.

Before the inspection, the 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 reviewed the information we held about the service, including the information in the PIR, before we visited the home. We also contacted the local health and social care commissioning teams for their views of the service.
