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 visit was carried out by one inspector and an expert by experience on 21 October 2015 and was unannounced.

Before the inspection we reviewed information held about the service including statutory notifications and enquiries relating to the service. Statutory notifications include information about important events which the provider is required to send us. We contacted commissioners of care and healthcare professionals for their views.

We spoke with three people who lived in their own apartment. We spoke with nine people who lived at the care home, three visitors, six members of staff, the general manager and registered manager. We viewed four people’s care files (two people receiving nursing care and two people receiving a domiciliary care service), two recruitment records of recently recruited staff, management quality reports and medication records for the care home and the domiciliary service.
