Overview

Inspection carried out on 16 January 2013

During a routine inspection

On the day of our visit to House Martins Number Two there were five people living at the home and we spoke with two of them to find out what it was like to live there and how they were supported by the staff. As the people who lived at the home were deaf we spoke to them via members of staff who used BSL (British Sign Language) to communicate.

Comments from people who used the service included;

�I really like living at Number Two. I enjoy swimming and dancing when I can�.

�I have a paid job at the moment. The staff always go with me each time I�m working�.

�The staff help me with my medication. I get my tablets every morning�.

�I like going on holiday. A member of staff always comes with me�.

We found that people living at the home were supported by the staff to live as independent a lifestyle as possible which was centred around their hobbies, interests and personal preferences.

None of the people we spoke with had any concerns about the service provided but everyone said they would feel quite comfortable in raising any concerns with the manager of the home if anything ever did arise.
