About the service

Turketel Road is a residential care home providing personal care to six people with a learning disability.

The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. This ensures that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.

People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People were supported by staff who knew them well and who treated them with care and compassion. Staff were supported to spend time getting to know people and to build trusting relationships with them. People and their loved ones were partners in planning their care and staff worked with people to develop their communication skills to enable them to give their views.

People decided on a daily basis what they would like to do, and staff supported this. People took part in a range of activities which they enjoyed and were supported by staff to try new things. 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. Relatives told us, and we saw that staff persevered and were committed to people expanding their experiences no matter how long this took.

People were supported to manage their health and staff worked with health care professionals to meet people’s needs. People’s medicines were managed safely and in the way, they preferred. People were involved in planning and cooking their own meals. Staff worked with people to expand the foods they would eat whilst respecting their choices.

The service applied the principles and values of Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. These ensure that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes that include control, choice and independence. People were supported to be part of their local community.

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's support focused on them having as many opportunities as possible for them to gain new skills and become more independent.

The manger and staff had a shared vision and set of values which focussed on supporting people to achieve their fullest potential. The manager and provider’s quality team carried out a range of audits to monitor the quality of the service. Staff were recruited safely and there were enough staff to meet people’s needs.
