Autism Together - 60 Manor Place Good

Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 4 October 2017

Autism Together 60 Manor Place is a care home registered for two people. The home is one of a range of services operated by the Wirral based charity Autism Together. It is an end of terrace house in the small village of Bromborough Pool. At the last inspection the service was rated Good. At this inspection we found the service remained Good.

The people who lived at the home were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems of the organisation supported this practice.

The same two people had lived at the home for around 15 years. They were supported by three staff who had worked there for two years or longer. The registered manager had responsibility for several similar services and was supported by two team leaders.

People had a safe and comfortable environment which had recently been redecorated. One person required support with prescribed medication and this was managed safely.

The people who lived at the home participated in various daytime activities supported by staff employed by Autism Together. We also saw evidence that they enjoyed a full social life. They were able to choose what meals they would like and were supported by staff with cooking.

Staff completed a comprehensive training programme and had regular supervision meetings with a team leader.

Care records and other records relating to the running of the home were well maintained and up to date.

Further information is in the detailed findings below.
