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 inspection took place on 26 and 27 November 2018. The inspection was carried out by one adult social care inspector and one expert-by-experience on 27 November 2018 and one adult social care inspector on 27 November 2018. An expert-by-experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service; on this occasion, the expert-by-experience had experience of caring for older people and people living with dementia. The inspection was unannounced.

Before the inspection we reviewed the information, we held about the service. This included notifications from the provider and speaking with the local authority contracts and safeguarding teams.

The provider had completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). The PIR is a document which gives the provider the opportunity to tell us about the service. This is information we require providers to send us at least once annually to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make.

We spent time observing care in the lounges and dining rooms and used the Short Observational Framework for Inspections (SOFI), which is a way of observing care to help us understand the experience of people using the service who could not express their views to us. We looked around some areas of the building including bedrooms, bathrooms and communal areas. We also spent time looking at records, which included reviewing elements of four people’s care records, two staff recruitment files and records relating to the management of the service.

We spoke with four people who used the service, two relatives, one visitor to the service, four care workers, the cook, the activities co-ordinator, a nurse, the deputy manager and the registered manager.

We took all this information into account when making our judgments about the service.
