During a routine inspection

Only one person using the service was home at the time of the visit. Discussions with this person, both in private and with assistance from a staff member, established their experience of life at the home. They said they liked living at 25 Barossa Rd and had formed good relationships with all staff. They told us there was autonomy in the way they lived their life and they were encouraged to be as independent as they could be. They were empowered to have choice and to make informed decisions in matters affecting them. They told us they participated in the running of the home. For example, they made their own breakfast and light lunch, vacuumed the lounge carpet each day, tidied and cleaned their room and chose the menu as a group. They were pleased that their preference to no longer attend day services or engage in community activities had been respected. They had no concerns or worries about the way their support needs were met. They said their bedroom was comfortable and had been personalised to their taste. They were happy that it was agreed that they could bring their cat with them when admitted to the home.
