Summary of a routine inspection carried out by
The Quality Care Commission, 8 January 2013
'We spoke individually with three people living at Chaseside Care Home. The conversation with two of the people was somewhat restricted because of the effects of dementia. However these people told us they were happy living at the home and that they liked the staff team. We also spoke briefly with other people in communal areas of the home. A more in-depth discussion took place with the third person who confirmed he was encouraged to made positive decisions for himself on a day to day basis. This person told us, “I feel very content here, almost too content. They all support me very well. I am very well looked after. They cater for all people here really well, they care for people. I feel safe here” We observed that people were comfortable and relaxed in their surroundings. It was also clear that there was a positive relationship between the staff team and the people they supported. In order to try to understand what it was like for people living at the home we also used the Short Observational Framework for Inspection (SOFI). SOFI is a specific way of observing care to help us understand the experiences of people who could not talk with us. We observed that people who used the service were supported to remain as independent as possible. We also saw that people were consistently treated with dignity and respect. For example, we saw staff offer assistance with personal care needs in a discreet and dignified manner and called the person by the name they preferred.'
NEW Sensory Therapy Room
One of the latest practices to help people living with Dementia. Changing lighting colours and ambience can help greatly with recognition and awareness.
Continuity of staff members, excellent training and development, teamwork and strong management are essential in ensuring our residents are well cared for and become part of our extended family.
Independent assessment and monitoring of our practices is regularly undertaken by Lancashire County Council
