About the service

The building is a five-bedroom residential property with a lounge, kitchen and dining area as well as a garden. The service has been developed and designed in line with the principles and values that underpin Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. This ensures that people who use the service can live as full a life as possible and achieve the best possible outcomes. The principles reflect the need for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live meaningful lives that include control, choice, and independence. People using the service receive planned and co-ordinated person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive for them.

People’s experience of using this service

Mundania provides accommodation and support to up to five people with a learning disability. At the time of our inspection four people were using the service.

The provider had identified and appropriately mitigated risks to people’s health and safety. There were clear systems in place for the identification, reporting and investigation of allegations of abuse. There were enough suitably qualified and appropriately vetted staff to work with people. People were given appropriate support with their medicines by staff who had received annual training, however their competencies were not checked every year. The home was clean and tidy on the day of our inspection and the provider had appropriate systems in place to prevent the risk of infection. There were clear systems in place to deal with accidents and incidents.

Staff were supported to do their roles. People were given the support they needed with their health and nutrition. The home was appropriately designed and decorated to meet people’s needs. The provider was not always following best practise guidance as staff were not always receiving medicines administration competency assessments.

People’s care was planned to ensure their needs and preferences were met. 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’s cultural and religious needs were met and they were supported to express their views. People’s privacy and dignity was respected and promoted and people were encouraged to be as independent as they wanted to be.

The provider had detailed communication care plans in place and effectively communicated with people. The provider was meeting the requirements of the Accessible Information Standards (AIS) and was able to provide information to people in different formats when needed. People’s recreational needs were met and there was a clear complaints and end of life care policy and procedure in place.

The outcomes for people using the service reflected the principles and values of Registering the Right Support by promoting choice and control, independence and inclusion. People's support focused on them having as many opportunities as possible for them to gain new skills and become more independent.

People and their relatives gave good feedback about the care workers as well as the quality of the service. The registered manager and other members of staff understood their responsibilities. The quality of care was effectively monitored.
