Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 18 July 2018

Holendene Way is registered to provide personal care for up to four adults with a learning disability. At the time of our inspection four people were using the service.

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.

There was not registered manager in post. There is a care coordinator acting as manager who is responsible for the running of the home. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

People continued to receive safe care. People were safe and individual risks to people were considered and reviewed when needed. There were enough staff available to offer support to people and medicines were managed in a safe way. There were safeguarding procedures in place these were followed to ensure people were protected from potential harm. Infection control procedures were in place and followed. There were systems in place to ensure lessons were learnt when things went wrong.

People continued to receive effective care. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff support them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice. People enjoyed the food that was available and were offered a choice. Staff were supported and trained to ensure that they had the skills to support people effectively, in line with current best practice. When needed people received support from health professionals in a timely manner. The home was decorated to meet people’s individual needs.

People continued to be supported in a caring way by staff they were happy with. People’s privacy and dignity was promoted and people continued to be offered choices. People were encouraged to maintain relationships that were important to them.

People continued to receive responsive care. People received care that was responsive to their needs and preferences. People had the opportunity to participate in activities they enjoyed. When needed people had information available to them in an accessible format. Complaint procedures were in place and followed when needed.

The service remained well led. Quality assurance systems were in place to identify where improvements could be made and when needed these changes were made. The provider notified us of significant events that occurred within the home. Feedback was sought from people and their relatives and this was used to bring about changes.
