Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 7 August 2019

School Court is an extra care housing scheme providing personal care to people living in their homes. At the time of the inspection most people using the service were aged 65 and over.

People using the service lived in flats within a community.

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

The provider had not made sure the arrangements in place for the management and assessment of the quality of the service were always effective.

When shortfalls in the quality of the service had been identified changes had been implemented to bring about improvements.

People's needs had been assessed and planned for.

People received care that was responsive to their needs and were supported by kind and caring staff that knew them well.

People had the opportunity to give their views of the service and felt able to raise concerns.

Where needed people were supported with the preparation of meals and to access the support of health care professionals.

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