Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 28 June 2019

About the service:

Grazebrook Homes - 49 Adshead Road is a residential care home for people with dementia, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, sensory impairments and adults over 65 years old. The home provides accommodation for persons who require nursing or personal care and is registered to provide support to nine people, at the time of inspection eight people lived at the home.

People’s experience of using this service:

People spoke highly of staff and felt safe. There were enough staff available to people and people felt staff knew them well. Staff were recruited in a safe way. People received their medicines as expected.

The service had been developed 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 and autism using the service can live as ordinary life as any citizen.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control over their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way as possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Staff had undergone induction and training to ensure they had the skills and knowledge to meet people’s needs.

People knew how to complain and that any concerns would be listened and responded to by the

registered manager. Actions were taken as a response to complaints.

People's care plans and risk assessments required improvement, to ensure they contained enough detail about people’s needs and preferences.

The registered manager had systems in place to ensure the service was meeting people’s needs. This did not include an assessment of the communal environment and we found areas required work.
