About the service

Cherry Tree House is a residential care home providing accommodation for persons who require nursing or personal care to up six people. The service provides support to people with learning disabilities and autistic people. Each person lived in their own self-contained flats within the building. At the time of our inspection six people were using the service.

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

We expect health and social care providers to guarantee people with a learning disability and autistic people respect, equality, dignity, choices and independence and good access to local communities that most people take for granted. ‘Right support, right care, right culture’ is the guidance CQC follows to make assessments and judgements about services supporting people with a learning disability and autistic people and providers must have regard to it.

Right Support:

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.

Staff focused on people’s strengths and promoted what they could do, so people had a fulfilling and meaningful everyday life.

The provider worked with people to plan for when they experienced periods of distress so that their freedoms were restricted only if there was no alternative. Staff did everything they could to avoid restraining people. The service recorded when staff restrained people, and staff learnt from those incidents and how they might be avoided or reduced.

The service gave people care and support in a safe, clean, well equipped, well-furnished and well-maintained environment that met their sensory and physical needs. People had a choice about their living environment and were able to personalise their rooms.

Staff supported people to take part in activities and pursue their interests in their local area and to interact with people who had shared interests.

Staff supported people to play an active role in maintaining their own health and wellbeing. Staff enabled people to access specialist health and social care support in the community.

Staff supported people with their medicines in a way that promoted their independence and achieved the best possible health outcome.

The service had enough appropriately skilled staff to meet people’s needs and keep them safe.

Right Care:

Staff promoted equality and diversity in their support for people. They understood people’s cultural needs and provided culturally appropriate care.

People received kind and compassionate care. Staff protected and respected people’s privacy and dignity.

Staff understood how to protect people from poor care and abuse. The service worked well with other agencies to do so. Staff had training on how to recognise and report abuse and they knew how to apply it.

People’s care, treatment and support plans reflected their range of needs and this promoted their wellbeing and enjoyment of life. People received care that supported their needs and aspirations, was focused on their quality of life, and followed best practice.

People could take part in activities and pursue interests that were tailored to them. The service gave people opportunities to try new activities that enhanced and enriched their lives.

Right Culture:

People led inclusive and empowered lives because of the ethos, values, attitudes and behaviours of the management and staff.

People received good quality care, support and treatment because trained staff and specialists could meet their needs and wishes.

Staff knew and understood people well and were responsive, supporting their aspirations to live a quality life of their choosing. Staff ensured risks of a closed culture were minimised so that people received support based on transparency, respect and inclusivity.

Staff knew and understood people well and were responsive, supporting their aspirations to live a quality life of their choosing.
