How this check was done

Our judgement

People who used the service were positive about the way they were cared for and supported. People received care and support that met their needs and minimised risks to their safety.

Overall, we found that 6 Old Park Ridings was meeting this essential standard.

User experience

We asked people who use services about the care provided. People told us that they received the support they needed.

People told us they got on well with staff. They knew who their key worker was and said that they met with them to discuss their support plan. People also said they had a copy of this plan.

Other evidence

We looked at care plans which had been developed and saw they had been evaluated on a regular basis. People had signed their individual care plans where possible which ensured their rights were respected. Support plans showed that the development of independent living skills was encouraged. Support plans were reviewed. We saw that short term and long term goals had been identified for individuals. These focussed on the individual and included physical as well as mental health needs.

We were told that an internal review of care plans took place every six months and the focus of support plans would change if appropriate.

Review meetings had taken place for people and the review minutes of the funding authority were present in the files we reviewed.

Risk assessments had been completed and were on file. For example, for a person going missing, alcohol, aggressive behaviour,and fire. The risk assessments promoted people’s health and safety.
