Inspection carried out on 27 March 2013

During a routine inspection

There were four people living at the home at the time of the inspection. During our visit we spoke with two people who were using the service and two members of staff. The other two people that used the service were attending college and work experience at a local animal sanctuary.

People were given information in a range of formats to assist them in understanding the choices available to them about how they wished to spend their time

People living at the home said they liked the home and felt safe. We made observations throughout the visit and saw people being offered choices as to how they wanted tospend their day. One person told us how they had moved to the service from hospital and had been able to choose how their room was decorated. Rooms we looked at were personalised and contained individual's personal belongings.

We saw people being addressed in a respectful manner. We looked at people's individual support plans and observed that these were discussed with people who used the service and that these discussions were recorded.

We saw that regular audits of the service were completed by the provider ensuring that people who used the service benefit from a service that monitors the quality of care that people received.

Staff told us that they had received training in protecting adults from abuse and that they felt that they were supported and trained to carry out their roles and meet the needs of people who used the service
