People’s experience of using this service

Relatives told us people were safe, and the care and support met their loved one’s needs. They had regular staff who understood their care needs and worked as a team to support and to deliver an effective service. People were protected from the risk of avoidable harm and were supported to safely receive their medicines. Enough staff were deployed to support people's needs and the service followed safe recruitment practices. Staff followed appropriate infection control practices to prevent the spread of diseases.

People’s needs were assessed to ensure these would be met. Staff were supported through an induction, training and supervision to ensure they had the knowledge and skills to perform their role. People were supported to maintain a healthy weight and to access healthcare services. The service worked in partnership with health and social care professionals to plan and deliver an effective service. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

People were supported by staff who were kind, caring and respected their privacy and dignity. Staff understood people’s health conditions, cultural backgrounds and diverse needs and supported them in a caring way. People and their relatives were involved in making decisions about their care and support needs and knew how to make a complaint if they were unhappy; however, they had not needed to complain about anything at the time of our inspection. There were systems in place to assess and monitor the quality and safety of the service and records were accurate, complete and up-to-date. Feedback from people and staff was used to improve the quality of the service.
