How this check was done

Our judgement

St Judes was meeting this outcome. People were supported so that they could be involved in making decisions and choices regarding all aspects of their care.

User experience

"I choose where I want to go, what I want to do and the time I get up or go to bed, its a smashing place."

"I chose how I wanted my room decorated. The staff are always polite, they knock on your door. I choose where I would like to go."

Other evidence

People are supported to make choices and decisions in all aspects of their daily lives. Admissions to the home take place over a prolonged period of time to ensure that the home is the right place for the individual and that the person moving in will get on with the other people who already live at the home.

During our inspection, we could see from the care records viewed that people signed their agreement to their care records and were involved in any reviews or updates that took place.

People were given choices regarding what they do and where they go. Meetings were held so that people could be involved in any decisions regarding any changes to the home; for example changes to the decor or premises.

The staff we spoke with said that people were involved in making decisions and choices regarding all aspects of their daily lives.
