West Supported Housing and Domiciliary Good

Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 7 September 2019

About the service

West Supported Housing and Domiciliary is a service that provides personal care to 11 people who live in their own homes and 22 people who live in one of seven supported living environments. The service supported younger adults, older people, people with learning disabilities and autistic spectrum disorder.

Not everyone who used the service received personal care. CQC only inspects where people receive personal care. This is help with tasks related to personal hygiene and eating. Where they do we also consider any wider social care provided.

People’s experience of using this service and what we found

West Supported Housing and Domiciliary continued to provide people with a safe quality service. Staff were knowledgeable about people’s risks and how to care for them safely. They understood how to protect and safeguard people and demonstrated a transparent attitude to reporting concerns.

People’s risks were assessed, monitored and adapted when their needs changed. There were enough staff to support people and safe recruitment procedures were followed

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

People were encouraged to remain independent, were consistently treated with respect and had their privacy and dignity protected. Where required people were supported with their medicines and to maintain their health by accessing relevant services.

People’s care was planned and delivered in a person-centred way. Staff understood people’s individual communication needs and spoke with people according to their individual needs. People’s end of life wishes had been discussed with people and documented.

The provider had effective quality assurance systems to monitor the quality and safety of the care provided. People were asked for their views and their feedback used to improve the service and make any necessary changes.
