Overview

Inspection carried out on 14 June 2013

During a routine inspection

We met all three people who lived at the home and spoke with two members of staff. The temporary manager was unavailable on the day of our visit. People told us that they liked living at the home. One person said they were "Happy" and "We all get on". A member of staff said "It is like a big family".

People were actively involved in the daily activities of the farm. They helped out with meaningful jobs and were able to do the tasks they enjoyed. People were treated with dignity and respect by the staff that supported them.

We found that people received care and support that met their needs. Care plans were up to date and contained the information staff needed to fully support people. Staff had a good awareness and understanding of each person and promoted their independence.

Staff were supported in their roles through training and regular team meetings. There were opportunities for staff to discuss any issues or concerns. The staff we spoke with said that they liked working there and had the support they needed. One staff member said "I really enjoy working here".
