What the care home does well
The college provides care in a well maintained pleasant welcoming environment by a well managed, motivated, trained staff team who work in a manner that recognises students needs and aspirations including the desire for independence. Areas of note that exceeded the expectations of the standards is the provision of activities where the range of activities would appear to meet the needs of students of all abilities.
What has improved since the last inspection?
The previous high standard commented on in previous reports has been maintained for all students. The inspectors did however note a more dynamic atmosphere in the college since the last inspection probably brought about by students becoming more familiar with the college but certainly influenced by staff who students described as"treating them as adults," "the best," "friends." One student in talking to the inspectors would seem to capture how most students felt about living at the College when they said "If it was not for this place we would not have a future."
What the care home could do better:
Following this inspection the only areas that required attention were improving the manner in which supervision is recorded and the redecoration of some areas damaged by wheelchairs.
