Overview

Inspection carried out on 5 August 2013

During a routine inspection

People told us that they felt that their needs were being met by the staff working at Low Fauld. One person told us, �Staff help me go out and do things I like.� People told us that they felt safe and were comfortable approaching staff with any concerns. They said that staff treated them well and they liked spending time talking with staff and going out with them.

We found that care planning was person centred, with people being involved in the development of their care and support. People were supported in a way that maximised their involvement and ensured that they had control over their lives, to the level of their ability. Each person we spoke with knew they had a key worker and said they spent time talking with them. People were focused on their plans having a good understanding of why they had been admitted to the home and the plans and goals for the future.

Staff were skilled at managing challenging behaviours and employed strategies to minimise risk and the need to use restraint or place other restrictions on people. This allowed people whose behaviour may be termed as challenging, to access the community and enhanced their quality of life as a result.
