The outcomes for people using the service reflected the principles and values of Registering the Right Support by promoting choice and control, independence and inclusion.

People received high-quality care from a service which was extremely well-led. The registered manager took pride in ensuring people received personalised support from a staff team who were dedicated and committed and told us they felt valued and respected. The registered manager led by example and promoted an inclusive and positive culture within the service. Governance frameworks were embedded within with service to both maintain and continually drive improvement.

There were sufficient numbers of staff to meet people’s needs. People’s risks were managed in a safe way and people were protected from the risk of abuse and harm as staff were trained to identify and respond to concerns of abuse.

People’s needs were assessed, and care plans were reviewed to ensure people received consistent support. Staff worked well with one another and with other agencies and professionals to improve people’s health and well-being. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Staff were kind and were committed to delivering support in line with people’s wishes and needs, promoting people’s independence and preserving dignity and respect. People’s social needs were met, and people were given choice about the way in which they lived their lives.

People and their relatives were consulted about the home and the way in which it was run and told us actions were taken as a result of feedback provided. People felt reassured complaints would be dealt with in line with the provider’s complaints policy.
