Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 7 September 2018

This inspection took place on 14 August 2018 and was announced. At our last inspection in December 2015 we rated the service Good. At this inspection we found evidence continued to support the rating of Good. There was no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.

“Patrick Carr” is a 'care home'. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection.

“Patrick Carr” is registered to provide care for up to 3 older people who have a learning disability.There was one person living in the home at the time of this inspection. The provider informed us that they planned to continue to provide care to only one person. The provider is a husband and wife team who live in the house which is registered as a care home.

There was a registered manager in place. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are 'registered persons'. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

People were safe living at the service and risks were managed effectively to keep people safe and protect their rights. The provider had effective systems in place to protect people from abuse and had responded appropriately to safeguarding risks.

The providers were experienced and had completed relevant training to support them to provide effective care. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and the service supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice. People had choice around what they ate, how they spent their time and had support to maintain good health.

People were involved in planning their care. The service ensured care plans were person centred and updated as and when people’s care needs changed. People led their chosen lifestyle.
