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 28 June 2017 and was unannounced. It was carried out by two inspectors. An assistant inspector carried out a Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI) observation in one area. SOFI is a way of observing care to help us to understand the experience of people who could not talk to us.

Before the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the service. This included previous inspection reports and action plans, statutory notifications (issues providers are legally required to notify us about) other enquiries from and about the provider and other key information we held about the service.

During the inspection we spoke with 14 people who lived at the home, five visiting relatives and one visiting GP. We also spoke with six members of staff The registered manager was available throughout the day.

Some people were unable to fully express their views to us verbally because of their dementia. We therefore spent time observing care practices and interactions in communal areas. We observed lunch being served. We looked at a selection of records which related to individual care and the running of the home. These included four care and support plans, three staff files, a sample of medication administration records and records of meetings held at the home.
