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

People were safe, and we found staff supported them effectively. Staff knew how to escalate concerns and were aware of potential risks when providing support. People received their medicines when they needed them, and improvements had been made to ensure all medicine records were accurate. Staff wore gloves and aprons to ensure they protected people from cross infection. Systems were in place to review incident and accidents to see if there were any lessons to learn from these.

Staff felt confident and supported in their roles and confirmed they had positive training opportunities which enabled them to care for people effectively. People’s healthcare needs were monitored and met, and staff worked in partnership with healthcare professionals. People, as much as practicably possible, had choice and control of their lives and staff were aware of how to support them in the least restrictive way and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice. People and relatives made positive comments about the staff that supported them, describing them as caring. Relatives told us the staff encouraged people to be independent, protected their privacy and treated them with dignity and respect. People were supported to participant in meaningful activities.

Relatives felt involved in the development of their loved one care plans and daily support. Care plans provided staff with information about people’s needs and preferences and how they would like these to be met. A complaints procedure was in place and people and their relatives knew how to raise concerns and felt confident these would be addressed.

People, relatives and staff thought the service was managed well. The registered manager was described as visible, approachable, open and transparent in the way they managed the service. Systems were in place to monitor the delivery of the service.
