Overview

Inspection carried out on 26 October 2012

During a routine inspection

When we visited Ridgemoor Road we met five of the people who lived there. They were not able to tell us about their experience at the home due to their learning disability.

We found that the staff engaged pleasantly with people and sought their co-operation and consent before care was given. The staff were able to tell us about the support people needed with areas such as nutrition, hydration and pressure area care. Equipment was in place to meet people moving and handling needs.

Suitable systems were in place to support people with their medicines.

The staffing levels were suitable when people were at home but at times access to outings was limited.

People were not able to formally complain but the staff told us that people were all able to express if they were unhappy and they would then take action.
