Overview

Inspection carried out on 2 January 2013

During a routine inspection

Staff told us "they provide a service promoting peoples independence within a family home". People who use the service told us "I love it were I live, I go on holiday and I do lots of nice things with the family".

Responses from recent carers' surveys showed that the respondents were happy with the service provided by Bournemouth Shared Lives. People said that they found the care workers to be "Kind, caring and professional".

Care workers had a good awareness of the importance of keeping people safe and they understood their responsibilities for reporting any concerns regarding abuse.

Bournemouth shared lives enabled people who used the service to live as part of a family, people who used the service were supported to make informed decisions where the person is unable to do this by themselves.
