About the service

Homeleigh Residential Care Home is a small care home that provides accommodation and personal care support for up to five adults with learning disabilities and or autism and who may have enduring mental ill-health. At the time of our inspection four people were using the service.

People’s experience of using this service and what we found

Risks to people’s physical health and safety were not always identified and with appropriate actions put in place to mitigate such risks.

The registered manager continues to fail to put systems and processes in place to assess, monitor and improve the quality of the service. Records of incidents and care people received was not always maintained.

People were supported to integrate in the home and social inclusion was promoted. The registered manager understood their responsibilities to safeguard people from abuse and had followed the provider’s safeguarding policies and procedures to address any safeguarding concern raised.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Records showed consent was obtained from people and their representative for the care and support they received, where appropriate. Records showed people's legal rights were protected in accordance with the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS).

Rating at last inspection and update: The last rating for this service was Inadequate (published 31 December 2019) as there were breaches of regulations 9, 11, 12, 13, 16 and 17 and Warning Notices were issued for breaches of 11, 13, 17. The provider completed an action plan after the last inspection to show what they would do and by when to improve.

Why we inspected

We undertook this targeted inspection to check whether the Warning Notices we previously served in relation to Regulation 11, 13 and 17 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014 had been met. The overall rating for the service has not changed following this targeted inspection and remains Inadequate.

CQC have introduced targeted inspections to follow up on Warning Notices or to check specific concerns. They do not look at an entire key question, only the part of the key question we are specifically concerned about. Targeted inspections do not change the rating from the previous inspection. This is because they do not assess all areas of a key question.

Follow up

We will request an action plan from the provider to understand what they will do to improve the standards of quality and safety. We will meet with the provider following this report being published to discuss how they will make changes to ensure they improve their rating to at least good. We will work with the local authority to monitor progress. We will return to visit as per our re-inspection programme. If we receive any concerning information we may inspect sooner.
