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

All of the people we spoke with during the inspection spoke highly of Three Bridges and the care they received. People described the service as, “A home from home.”

Staff were motivated and committed to deliver a high standard of care. They were well trained and felt supported in their role.

Care plans identified the needs of people and contained detailed person-centred information to meet the preferences of people receiving care.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice. People confirmed they were offered choices and involved in decision making relating their care.

People had access to healthcare and the registered manager worked closely with other agencies to ensure successful outcomes were achieved.

Systems were in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of people. These included systems to protect people from the risk of abuse, receive their medicines safely and to ensure that people could share their views on the service being provided at Three Bridges.
