Overview

Inspection carried out on 13 June 2011

During a routine inspection

People told us they like living at Wheatley lane, they said everyone is friendly and gets on well together. One person jokingly said �well, we get on most of the time�.

One person told us �I like living with my friend�.

People are consulted about how the house is run; we saw evidence of this in the minutes of meetings. People are asked about the menus, holidays and visits are arranged that are in keeping with individual hobbies and interests. One person told us about the concerts he had been to and told us about a visit to Manchester United football ground.

People told us about some of the activities they take part in during the week, they said they enjoyed them. A couple of people told us about their care plans; one person told us some of the things that were in his plan.

We asked people what they thought about the accommodation and they said it was �good�,� very nice and comfortable� and �I like my room�.

People told us they liked the staff and got on well with them. People were at ease chatting to staff about what they had been doing during the day. We witnessed some good humoured exchanges between people living and working there.

There are always sufficient staff on duty to meet people�s needs; this was confirmed by people living there. From talking to staff it was evident that they communicate well with each other and they can respond to any changes in people�s needs by alterations to the staffing arrangements.
