Overall summary & rating

Updated 8 November 2018

Beachview is a residential care home for 10 young people. It provides support to people who have a range of learning disabilities, some of whom also have a physical disability. Beachview is a detached house that has also been adapted to cater for people with a physical disability and has wheelchair access throughout. All bedrooms are for single occupancy and have en-suite wet room facilities. There is a large communal living and dining area and a separate sensory room. A lift provides easy access between floors.

At our last inspection we rated the service good. At the inspection we found that the provider was in breach of Regulation 18 of the Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009. The provider had failed to act in line with their legal responsibilities and had failed to notify the Commission of authorisations under the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS). Following the inspection we received appropriate notifications and the provider had met this regulation.

At this inspection we found the evidence continued to support the rating of good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.

At this inspection we found the service remained Good.

The service met all relevant fundamental standards.

The service had a positive culture that was person-centred, open and inclusive. There was a strong emphasis on putting people first. People were involved in the service within their capabilities. People assisted with meal preparation with staff support. Everyone spoke highly regarding the staff. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service support this practice.

It is a requirement of the provider's registration that they have a registered manager in post. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run. The service had a manager in place who had started the process to become registered with us. The service was well led. The manager was aware of their legal responsibilities.

Staff were enthusiastic and keen to talk about their role. Staff were proud of the service and their work. They felt supported within their roles and held the manager in high regard. Recruitment practices were robust and staff received training appropriate to their role and the needs of the people living at the service. People were supported to maintain contact with their relatives.

People had comprehensive plans of care and risk assessments. Care was individualised and person centred. Medicines were managed safely and in people’s best interests.
