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

People's care had not always been planned in a personalised way. Staff told us they did not always have time to spend with people. People told us they did not always get their care delivered as they would prefer. Although there were some activities offered, due to staffing not everyone had the option to engage in meaningful activities every day. There was a complaints policy in place and people and relatives felt able to complain and were confident any concerns would be dealt with.

People and relatives were happy with the service and spoke positively about the staff and registered manager.

Risks to people were identified and care plans provided information for staff to minimise assessed risks. Medicines were stored safely and people were supported to take their medicines as prescribed. The service followed good infection control practices. Lessons were learnt from accidents and incidents.

The provider had safe recruitment processes in place. Staff received regular training, supervision and appraisal. People were supported to have choice and control of their lives. Staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests. People received appropriate help with eating and drinking and were supported to see healthcare professionals when needed.

People were supported by caring staff who treated them with kindness and dignity. People's privacy was respected.

The registered manager and provider completed audits to monitor and improve standards. Feedback was sought and acted on. We received positive feedback on the management and leadership of the service.
