Inspection carried out on 14 January 2014

During a routine inspection

We spoke with two people in private who used the service and both indicated that the service supported their needs. We reviewed thoroughly two people's care records and viewed the risk assessments for all eight service users. The two care records reviewed showed that all successful applicants to Hebron House underwent a thorough pre-admission assessment. Such assessment included identifying and agreeing the individual's needs and wishes prior to and during their time at Hebron House. We also saw evidence of ongoing support offered when people moved on from Hebron House.

We noted that risk assessments were continuous throughout the person's time at Hebron House.

We saw that people had access to therapeutic sessions as part of their rehabilitation. We also saw that activities such as cooking, laundry, art and computer studies were made available.

We spoke with staff who told us they felt supported and valued.They said they were provided with the necessary and ongoing training in order to meet the needs of the organisation, the team and the people using the service.

One person using the service told us "I like to go out with my keyworker. I feel very supported." Another indicated they were allowed to smoke in the grounds of the house, but not indoors.

The home was clean, tidy, well presented and comfortable.
