During a routine inspection

41 Birdwood Grove has three people living there. On the day of our visit one person was at the home. Staff told us that two of the people were out for the day attending day services. We spoke with one person. Due to the nature of the individual�s learning disability we were able to gather limited comments.

We saw that people looked happy and relaxed in the presence of staff. The registered manager told us that two of the people had lived at the home since it had opened over twenty years ago and the third person had lived at the home for over four years.

We spoke with one person who lived at Birdwood Grove and we also spoke with three staff including the registered manager. We saw staff treated people in a sensitive, respectful and professional manner and involved individuals in the running of the home.

We looked around the home which was clean, comfortably furnished and free from unpleasant odours. We saw that in the living room their pictures on display that the individuals living in the home had painted. All the bedrooms were single occupancy with ensuite showers and toilets which had been adapted to individual needs. We saw that bedrooms were personalised with books, TV�s and pictures.
