A CARE home has been told it must improve after inspectors found risks were not always recognised.

Grosvenor Lodge, in Old Shoreham Road, Hove, was visited by Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspectors on June 13.

They found the care home, which houses 30 people, requires improvement in three of the five categories used to rate services.

The report said: “Risks to people were not always appropriately recognised and assessed.

“People were not always supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives.”

CQC said it will work alongside authorities to monitor the care home’s improvement.

The report, however, praised the home’s safeguarding practices.

It said: “People were treated with kindness, dignity and respect and encouraged to express their views and be involved in their care.”
