Updated 10 May 2018

This inspection was unannounced and took place on 13 March 2018. The last inspection of Wellesley House took place in December 2015 when we found all the regulations we reviewed were met.

Wellesley House 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.

Wellesley House provides support for up to four people who have a learning disability who may at times present behaviour which can be challenging. At the time of our visit, four people were using the service. Wellesley House is a large terraced house located close to the centre of Bury and opposite a local park.

A registered manager was in post. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are 'registered persons'. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run. The registered manager was also one of the registered providers for the home.
