During a routine inspection

The people we spoke with told us that they had regular meetings with their key worker where they reviewed together all aspects of their personal care plan and planned activities and goals for the next period. One person said, �I can discuss anything that I want with my key worker.�

One person we spoke with told us that the staff did not understand their specific needs. They told us that they would like to be more independent, but they needed help with all their personal care and daily living needs. When we checked this person�s care plan it contained full details of all their needs and how staff should support the person to meet their needs and to become more independent. This person also told us that the support they received at 6 Old Park Ridings was a lot better than they received at the home they lived at previously.

Each person completed their own record of the food they ate at each meal, so that they took some responsibility for monitoring their diets. One person told us that they had seen a dietician who said that they should eat two creamy dessert supplements a day, and they made sure that they followed this advice.

Staff we spoke with confirmed that the training they received provided them with the skills and knowledge they required to carry out their role. They told us that they had received training in mental health awareness so that they understood the needs of people with mental health concerns.
