Inspection carried out on 29 August 2013

During a routine inspection

There were three people living in the home during our inspection. Due to people’s complex needs, we were not always able to speak with everybody about their experience of living there. Where people were unable to tell us about their experiences due to their learning disability, we spent time observing the support they received from staff. We also spoke with three members of staff and the registered manager.

We saw that people received their care in a positive and caring manner. We observed care being provided by staff who had the knowledge and skills to deliver the support that each person needed. The staff were friendly and professional in their approach.

People were supported to take part in activities that were interesting and stimulating so that they had a meaningful lifestyle. People were able to choose what recreational activities to be involved in, including walking, eating out, going to adventure parks and swimming.

Staff told us that they received appropriate training and support in order to provide positive outcomes for people using the service.

We saw that the provider had an effective system in place to assess and monitor the service, which focussed on improvement.

Medication systems were in place and monitored to ensure people received their medicines as prescribed.
