Overview

Inspection carried out on 2 October 2013

During a routine inspection

On the day of our visit we spoke with a staff member and head of care within the organisation. We also had responses from external agencies including social services .This helped us to gain a balanced overview of what people experienced living at 23 Ash Street. No other staff were on duty at the time of the inspection. The four students/residents were not available as they were attending Arden College.

During the inspection we viewed the environment including the kitchen area and looked at care and maintenance records. We also saw records of how the service sought the views of residents, families and staff.

The staff member we spoke with had an awareness of the residents care needs and support plan. A staff member said, �Each care support plan is person centred and worked through with the student.�

The member of staff told us students were responsible for the cleanliness of the building and were supported by staff members. �Each student has a planned routine of domestic tasks, with oversight from staff. We do this to promote life skills and independence.�

Prior to our visit we contacted Sefton contracts monitoring team. They told us they currently had no concerns with the service being provided by the home.
