During a routine inspection

During this inspection we met with all the people who live at Brimley. They told us they were very happy living at Brimley, and said the staff were "the best". We saw that staff were respectful of people's privacy and of their right to be independent and be treated equally. Staff had a good understanding of the mental capacity act and underlying principles, although had not completed records in relation to this.

Records and discussions with staff showed that support for people was focussed on increasing people's skills and independence. People were helped to remain physically healthy by for example seeing their GP and allied healthcare professionals. They were supported to understand and to attend for health checks. People enjoyed their social activities and links with the local community.

Staff received training appropriate to their role, including safeguarding training. Staff demonstrated a good understanding of abuse and of safeguarding. Training had not included how to make a safeguarding alert. Systems were in place to monitor the quality of the service provided.
