Overview

Inspection carried out on 17 January 2014

During a routine inspection

The home is a 22 bedded facility for the residential care for people with a learning disability.

There were 21 people living in the home at the time of the inspection, with eight people actually present whilst we were there. The other 13 people were undertaking activities outside of the home.

The home was clean and well maintained. The home had effective systems and processes in place in relation to the management of the care of the people living in the home and staff management, but maintained a very homely atmosphere.

The interactions between the staff and the people living in the home were warm and respectful. Both staff and people living in the home described the home as "good" or "lovely". One staff member told us it was a 'lovely home' and "its like being at home". One person told us that she "always looked forward to coming to work". One person living in the home told us that the home was "a noisy home where we have lots of fun", while another told us simply that "I'm happy here".
