Overview

Inspection carried out on 21 March 2014

During an inspection looking at part of the service

We spoke with staff who demonstrated a good understanding of people�s needs and how to promote people�s independence.

Since our last inspection staff had received training in dignity and privacy. Staff we spoke with demonstrated a good understanding of people�s needs and described how they balanced risk with people�s independence. People who used the service told us that they were given choices and were happy with the service they received.

New systems had been introduced since our last inspection in January 2014 to address concerns. Staff were proactively monitoring risk and had developed their knowledge of safeguarding.

Training records demonstrated that all staff had received safeguarding vulnerable adults training and most had received training in the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards.
