Overview

Inspection carried out on 15 November 2012

During a routine inspection

We were told three people had lived there for twelve years. Peoples needs had changed over the years and care plans and risk assessments reflected this. The three people living in the service had limited verbal communication skills, but responded positively by facial expressions and body language.

Staff had a good understanding of safeguarding adults from abuse and how to report them appropriately. There had been no safeguarding referrals made since the service was registered.

Medication was seen to be stored securely and medication administration records had been seen to be well maintained and up to date.

There was always at least one member of staff on day duty and one on sleeping night duty. We saw evidence of staff flexibility when evening or week- end activities took place.

Written comments made during reviews, demonstrated that family members were confident about the management of the service, the experienced staff, and care provided.
