88 Travis Gardens is a care home for people living with a learning disability. The home is situated in Hexthorpe near Doncaster. The service can accommodate up to eight people. The service is provided by Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust.

At the time of our inspection there was a registered manager in post. 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 were safe from the risk of harm and staff had the knowledge to recognise abuse. Risks associated with people’s care were identified and actions had been put in place to help reduce any hazards. The service had a safe recruitment procedure in place to ensure appropriate staff were employed. There were sufficient staff available to meet people’s needs in a timely manner. People’s medicines were managed in a safe way. People received their medicines as prescribed.

People were supported to eat and drink sufficient amounts to maintain a balanced diet. Snacks and drinks were available throughout the day. Staff were trained to carry out their role and felt they had the necessary skills to do their job. Healthcare professionals were accessed as required. The service was meeting the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

We observed staff interacting with people who used the service and found they treated people with kindness, respect and compassion. Staff were extremely caring and offered appropriate support to express their views and make decisions about their care. People’s privacy and dignity was maintained and their independence was promoted. Staff used a range of communication skills to ensure people were able to express their views and feel involved in their care.

People received personalised care which was based on their individual needs. A range of social activities and stimulation was provided. The registered provider had a complaints procedure which was displayed in the home.

Audits took place to ensure the service was working in line with the registered providers policies and procedures. A range of meetings took place to enable people to voice their opinions and be involved in the development of the service.
