Cedar Falls Care Home with Nursing is situated on Little London Road in the bustling market town of Spalding.
The home offers 24-hour care to residents living in the home and those living in the surrounding Tanglewood Village grounds.
A 130-strong team of staff know our residents personally and provide an exceptional level of person-centred care for all, whether they are with us for residential care, nursing needs or dementia care.
This purpose-built home first opened its doors to the local community in 1992 and has been beautifully maintained as one of Tanglewood’s flagship locations. Cedar Falls underwent an extensive refurbishment project in recent years. Spacious and bright bedrooms are decorated to the highest standard, offering the comforts of a true home away from home. Residents are encouraged to personalise their own space, and maintenance staff are always on hand to place that cherished family photo.
Cedar Falls offers a hair salon, sun rooms and a variety of lounges which are designed to suit people who enjoy socialising and participating in our exciting activities programme, as well as those who enjoy quieter activities. During the summer months the home’s delightfully manicured grounds and our central courtyard provide the ideal setting to enjoy time with friends and loved ones. In keeping with the Tanglewood philosophy guests are welcome any time; there are no set visiting hours.
OverallRead overall summary
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 23 August 2016 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of an inspector, a specialist advisor, who was a nurse, 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.
Before the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the home. This included any incidents the provider was required to tell us about by law and concerns that had been raised with us by the public or health professionals who visited the service. We also reviewed information sent to us by the local authority who commission care for some people living at the home.
During the inspection we spoke with nine people living at the home and eight relatives who visited during our inspection. We also spoke with a doctor who was at the home to review some of the people in their care. We spoke with two nurses and four other members of the care staff, the registered manager and the providers. We also spent time observing care.
We looked at eight care plans and other records which recorded the care people received. In addition we examined records relating to how the service was run including staffing, training and quality assurance.
