During a routine inspection

Barnett Wood Lane had four people living there. On the day of our visit one person was at the home. Staff told us that two of the people were out for lunch, they returned briefly before leaving to collect the other person who was at a day centre. We spoke with two people. Due to the nature of the individual�s learning disability we were able to gather limited comments with the support of staff.

People told us they were �happy� and they were �safe�. We saw that people looked happy and relaxed in the presence of staff. Staff told us that three of the people had lived in the home for 18 years and another person had recently moved into the home.

We looked around the home which was clean, comfortably furnished and free from unpleasant odours. One person was happy for us to look at their room. Their bedroom was personalised with photographs, books, TV�s and pictures.

We also spoke with three staff. We spent time observing how staff interacted and supported people. We saw staff treated people in a sensitive, respectful and professional manner.
