Inspection carried out on 1 May 2013

During a routine inspection

During our inspection we found that some people who used the service had complex needs and were not able to verbally communicate their views and experiences to us. These individuals were reliant on staff to meet their physical, emotional and social needs. We spoke with one relative who told us that staff treated people with respect, protected their dignity and had professional, positive relationships.

We spoke with four care support workers who provided long term placements and one relative who told us that people were very happy living with their carers. They told us they had their independence whilst receiving support from the carers they lived with. They told us they were well looked after and they made choices in relation to their every day lives.

The provider had suitable arrangements in place to ensure that people who used the service were safeguarded against the risk of abuse. People we spoke with said that they felt safe and supported by the staff.

The provider had a satisfactory recruitment and selection procedure in place to ensure that staff were appropriately employed.

The provider had a system in place to deal with comments and complaints. People who used the service could be confident that their comments and complaints were listened to.
