Faircross 102 is a care home. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection. The service is registered to provide support and accommodation to a maximum of three adults with learning disabilities and on the autistic spectrum. Three people were using the service at the time of inspection.

The service does not need to have a registered manager in place as it is managed by an individual who is registered as the sole provider.

There were enough staff working at the service to meet people’s needs and robust staff recruitment procedures were in place. Appropriate safeguarding procedures were in place. Risk assessments provided information about how to support people in a safe manner. Procedures were in place to reduce the risk of the spread of infection. Medicines were managed in a safe manner.

People’s needs were assessed before they started using the service to determine if those needs could be met. Staff received on-going training to support them in their role. People were able to make choices for themselves and the service operated within the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005. People told us they enjoyed the food.
