Overall summary & rating


Updated 31 December 2019

About the service

Welcome House- Leeza Court is a residential care home. It was providing personal care to 12 people with mental health needs at the time of the inspection. Some people had additional needs including a physical disability or eating disorder. The service can support up to 16 people.

Not everyone who used the service received personal care. CQC only inspects where people receive personal care. This is help with tasks related to personal hygiene and eating. Where they do we also consider any wider social care provided.

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

People continued to feel safe and staff knew how to identify, report and respond to safeguarding concerns. Staff followed appropriate guidance to minimise identified risks to people's health, safety and welfare.

Staffing levels reflected people’s needs. People said staff were available to help and give assurances when it was needed.

People 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 in the service supported this practice.

Staff encouraged people to make choices in their daily lives and to participate in home life. People maintained relationships with people that mattered to them.

People were supported to eat and drink enough to meet their needs. They also received the support they

needed to stay healthy and to access healthcare services. People received their medicines when they were needed.

People continued to be supported by a small team of staff who knew them well. Staff understood the importance to maintaining a calm atmosphere to promote people’s mental health. Trusting relationships had been developed so that staff treated people with dignity and kindness.

Staff felt well supported and communicated well as a team. They had the knowledge and skills to perform their roles.

The service continued to be well-led and the registered manager provided good leadership. They checked staff were focussed on people experiencing good quality care and support. People and staff were encouraged to provide feedback about how the service could be improved. This was used to make changes and improvements that people wanted.
