This report provides information about the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) findings from looking at adult care homes in Wales. Care homes provide care together with accommodation for both younger and older adults. Homes varied in size and provision; they could care for people with learning or physical disability, mental health needs, sensory impairments and older people. Overall there was evidence of continued improvement in several core areas: the quality of care planning has improved; service users' wishes and feelings are taken into account and there is evidence of service users being involved in decision making regarding their care; service users' privacy and dignity is promoted in the home; the maintenance and cleanliness of premises has shown some improvement; recruitment practices including pre-employment checks on staff have improved; providers taking responsibility for reviewing the quality of care provided; the appropriate assessment and management of risk to service users. The following key areas still require attention: support and training for staff; staffing levels; supervision of staff; and appropriate management of medication must still be a priority for care homes. There was a decrease in both the number of adult protection issues referred to CSSIW and CSSIW's subsequent involvement in investigations. This may in part link to the developing understanding of the role of CSSIW in adult protection.
