Rebe is a ‘care home’. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection.

Rebe provides accommodation for up to three men or women over the age of 18. People may have a learning disability and/or a mental health diagnosis. There were three people living at Rebe at the time of the inspection.

The care service has been developed and designed in line with the values that underpin the Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. These values include choice, promotion of independence and inclusion. People with learning disabilities and autism using the service can live as ordinary a life as any citizen.

Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’.
