What the care home does well
The way in which information is gathered and kept about service users means staff can provide support in a way that service users need and prefer. It also means staff have in depth knowledge and understanding about each individual service user and so encourage service users to develop skills and experiences safely. The training staff complete when they first start work gives them a good grounding in understanding the needs of people with learning disabilities. The ongoing training staff are expected to complete means staff develop further in their knowledge and skills which improves the quality of the support service users receive. This home is accredited with the National Autistic Society which means the home has to demonstrate they have expert knowledge and training about providing support for people with autistic spectrum disorder.
What has improved since the last inspection?
There are no longer any staff vacancies which means there is a stable staff team to support service users. With the exception of one new member of staff, all staff have completed induction and foundation training. There has been an extensive programme of redecoration; the home is now decorated to a high standard, is bright and cheerful.
What the care home could do better:
Although some improvements have been made in making sure service users views contribute towards the homes quality assurance this could be explored further.
