Care service description

Anderida is a residential care home for up to three people with learning difficulties. The service is a detached bungalow in a small village with local amenities. There were two people living at the service when we inspected.

Anderida is a ‘care home’. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection. Anderida accommodates two people in one adapted building.

The service has been developed and designed in line with the values that underpin the Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. These values include choice, promotion of independence and inclusion. People with learning disabilities using the service can live as ordinary a life as any citizen.

At the last inspection, the service was rated ‘Good.’
