During a routine inspection

This inspection took place on the 22 April 2016 and was unannounced.

Butterfly’s is a small care home providing personal care and support for up to nine adults with a learning disability. On the day of our inspection there was nine people living at the service

There was a registered manager. 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 well cared for, relaxed and comfortable with staff. People and their relatives were complimentary about the staff team and the quality of care people received. Everyone we spoke with including relatives told us that all the staff and the registered manager showed them exceptional compassion and empathy and that staff gave them time and listened to them. People were cared for by a motivated, caring and well trained staff team. Staff understood how to identify people at risk of abuse and aware of protocols for reporting any concerns they might have.

Staff had been provided with sufficient guidance and information within care records. Care and support plans were personalised regularly reviewed and accurately reflected people’s care and support needs. This included an assessment of their health care needs and the planning of personalised activities which reflected people’s autonomy and choice about how they lived their daily lives.

People’s likelihood of harm was reduced because risks to people’s health, welfare and safety had been assessed and risk assessments produced which guided staff in how to mitigate these risks and keep people safe from harm. Medicines were managed safely and the provider’s recruitment procedures demonstrated that they operated a safe and effective recruitment system.

Staffing ratios were sufficient to enable staff to be responsive to people’s changing needs and preferences. This allowed for people go out on trips, both as a group and individually, and to experience well-paced and attentive care.

The culture of the service was open, inclusive, empowering and enabled people to live as full a life as possible according to their choices, wishes and preferences. The management team provided effective leadership to the service and enabled people to air their views through regular review of their care, meetings and their involvement in the planning of their care.
