Inspection carried out on 13 February 2013

During a routine inspection

We looked at a range of records, spoke with the assistant manager, three support staff and the cook in private. We also spoke with a relative of a person living in the home. We saw the communal areas of the home, some people�s bedrooms and spent some time observing interactions between staff and people living in the home. We spoke with the local authority who told us that they had no concerns about the home.

People living in the home had individual communication, and behavioural needs and no one was able to provide their views about their experiences of living in the home. However we saw that people were involved with their care and the running of the home as far as they were able. We observed people being offered choices including whether to be involved in an activity.

We were told that independence and individuality were promoted within the home. People living there were supported and enabled to do things for themselves as far as they were able. They were encouraged to express their views using their preferred individual communication styles and to participate in making decisions relating to their care and treatment.
