Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 20 March 2019

About the service: Wortley Villa is a residential care home. It provides accommodation and personal care for up to five adults with autistic spectrum disorder. At the time of the inspection there were four people living at the service.

People’s experience of using this service:

People were supported by a small but consistent team of long-term staff who were kind and caring. Because people had lived at the service for many years and staff had worked there for a long time, staff had good relationships with people and knew them well. People told us they liked living at the service and wouldn’t change anything about it.

Staff knowledge in relation to people’s condition, their needs, and how to support them was thorough.

Care plans were person centred and included people’s personal goals for the year. There was a focus on providing people with a clear timetable and consistent support. This resulted in people being relaxed and being able to enjoy doing things they wanted to do.

There was an open culture where staff and people could raise concerns or issues. People told us they felt safe at the service and felt happy to speak up.

Rating at last inspection: Good (July 2016).

Why we inspected: This was a planned inspection based on the previous rating.

Follow up: We will continue our on-going monitoring of the service and all information we receive. We will use this information to determine when we next inspect the service.
