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.

The inspection took place 18 and 26 July 2017, it was unannounced on the first day.

The inspection team consisted of two adult social care inspectors 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. In this case services for older people.

On this occasion we did not ask the provider to complete 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. However, since the last inspection the provider has had an improvement action plan in place and they have been sending up regular updates.

Before the inspection we reviewed all the information we held about the provider. We contacted the local authority to ask for their views on the service and used the feedback they provided to help us plan the inspection. During the inspection we observed the meal service at breakfast and lunch time and observed how people were cared for and supported in the communal rooms. We spoke with three people who lived at the home, four relatives, four care assistants, two nurses, one housekeeper, the cook, the activities organiser, the registered manager and one of the company directors.

We looked at five people's care records and people's medication records. We looked at other records related to the day to day running of the home such as training records, maintenance records, meeting notes. We looked around the home, inside and outside.

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