Inspection carried out on 31 July 2018

During a routine inspection

Livability Marion House is a ‘care home’. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection.

Livability Marion House is registered to accommodate up to eight people. At the time of our inspection five people with learning disabilities were living in the home in one adapted building in a residential area of Bournemouth.

At our last inspection we rated the service Good. At this inspection we found the evidence continued to support the rating of Good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and on going monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.


At this inspection we found the service remained Good.

People were supported by staff who understood the risks they faced and how to support them to reduce these whilst respecting their rights. Staff understood how to identify and report abuse and were confident in their role as advocates when this was appropriate. Staff supported people to take medicines safely.

People were supported by caring staff who had the skills to ensure they lived their lives the way they chose. Communication was considered and staff supported people to understand the choices available to them. This meant 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 and relatives told us they could raise any concerns and these were addressed appropriately.

Quality assurance systems involved people and this led to a safer and better quality service.
