Belvidere Park is a residential care home for up to three people living with mental health and learning disabilities. The property is a large detached property, situated in the residential area of Crosby and is located close to public transport links, leisure and shopping facilities. There are bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground and first floor. The first floor can be accessed via a stair lift.

At the last inspection, the service was rated Good. At this inspection we found the service remained good.

The registered manager had systems in place to record accidents and incidents and take appropriate action when required. Recruitment checks were carried out to ensure people were suitable to work with vulnerable people at the home. We saw there were enough staff on duty to meet people’s needs.

People are supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff support them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service support this practice.

The registered manager understood the requirements of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) and the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS). This meant they were working within the law to support people who may lack capacity to make their own decisions.

Risk assessments had been developed to minimise the potential risk of harm to people who lived in the home. These were reviewed on a regular basis.

Person centred plans were in place detailing how people wished to be supported, as well as action plans detailing people’s hope and aspirations and their progress in achieving them.

Staff responsible for assisting people with their medicines had received medicines training to ensure they were competent and skilled to do so.

People regularly received snacks and drinks between meals to ensure they received adequate nutrition and hydration. Meals were with people’s preferences in mind.

We found people had access to healthcare professionals and their healthcare needs were met.

People who lived at the home participated in a range of activities, both with one another or individually with a staff member. People were supported to access their local community on a daily basis, when possible.

People who used the service knew how they could make a complaint. The complaints procedure was displayed in the home.

The registered manager used a variety of methods to assess and monitor the quality of the service provided at Belvidere Park. These included regular audits of the service and ‘staff and residents’ meetings to seek the views of people about the quality of care.

The service met all relevant fundamental standards.
