About the service

Rosewood is a residential care home for up to eight adults with learning disabilities, some of whom have associated physical disabilities. People live in one adapted bungalow. At the time of inspection, six people were using the service.

The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. This ensures that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.

The service was a large home, bigger than most domestic style properties. The service fitted in well within the residential area where it was located. There were no identifying signs at the front of the home to indicate it was a care home. Industrial bins at the rear of the property were adequately concealed. Staff were also discouraged from wearing anything that suggested they were care staff when coming and going with people.
