Updated 21 February 2018

Glenview is registered to provide accommodation and personal care for up to people six people who have learning disabilities. At the time of our inspection five people were living there.

A registered manager was in post but owing to pre-arranged annual leave was not available on day one of this inspection. However, the registered manager was present during day two. 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.

At the last inspection the service was rated good. At this inspection we found the service remained good.
