Inspection carried out on 12 January 2014

During a routine inspection

Drakes Place is made up of three adjacent houses registered to provide personal care and accommodation for up to 27 people. The people accommodated had a learning disability and /or a physical disability. The service also had an outreach service that provided personal care to people in their own homes. At the time of the inspection the outreach service provided support to three people.

Some of the people who used the service, on the day of the inspection, had limited or no verbal communication skills. However, we were able to speak with seven people, most of whom were happy with the support provided. People said staff were helpful and respectful, the people enjoyed the food and they were happy with their accommodation. We were able to speak with three staff members who all said they thought a good service was provided at Drakes Place.

On the day of the inspection the accommodation was furnished, decorated and maintained to a good standard. The home was very clean and there were no offensive odours.

There were satisfactory numbers of staff on duty. There were satisfactory records in place to demonstrate staff received appropriate training. The service�s record systems (for example care planning, health and safety and staff training) were all maintained to a satisfactory standard.
