What the care home does well This home understands the importance of helping people to make an informed choice about where they live. They ensure that people have the information they need about the home and that they come to visit to meet with people and staff, so they can do that. Staff get to know people really well and support them to develop their life plans which includes their goals and aspirations, and how these might be achieved. Risks are identified and people are supported to develop the skills to manage these. People living here say they are happy with their lives, how they live their lives and some are excited about their future plans. People make choices in their daily lives and, depending on their abilities, about their future lives. People are encouraged and supported to manage their own monies if possible and work is ongoing in this area. People know who to make a complaint to and are kept safe. People have opportunities to take part in varied activities, both at home and outside the home. For example, some people attend a life skills course, play skittles, go out independently with friends, attend art classes and discos. Other people prefer to watch TV and other sedentary activities. One person proudly showed the inspector a piece of work they had nearly completed which had meant them learning a new skill. People also help to choose and prepare meals. They say how much they like the food and staff report that they try to strike the balance between allowing choice and ensuring people have a healthy diet. People are helped to stay healthy through good preventative care and by ensuring that people access the primary care and specialist services they need. Records show that people for example are offered mammograms and smears. People get the medication they need, on time and as it is prescribed. Staff receive training in the management of medicines. They also receive training in for example fire prevention and management, food hygiene, safeguarding people and caring for people with learning disabilities. Many staff have achieved or are working towards a National Vocational Qualifications in care. All the above is achieved by a strong and committed management team. The project manager (registered with the commission) is well qualified and experienced. She is supported by a committed voluntary management committee who have all consistently demonstrated their professionalism. People living here benefit from an open and inclusive style of leadership that ensures people are treated equally and with respect, ensuring that their diverse needs are addressed and met. What has improved since the last inspection? Since the last inspection the home have worked hard to continue to develop person centred care planning which is enhancing the lives of the people living here. People have developed new skills and this is opening up new opportunities for them. Maintenance and redecoration is ongoing. What the care home could do better: We have recommended that the home review the way that the medicines and monies keys are stored to ensure that these are held securely at all times.

This means the people who use this service experience excellent quality outcomes. This unannounced inspection took place as part of the normal programme of inspection. The site visit took place over one day. During the inspection we (the commission) spoke with 3 of the 6 people whose home this is. Some of whom have communication difficulties. Because the people we spoke with would be easy to identify, we have not used their quotes in full but have summarised what they have said. We looked in depth at the care and services offered to 2 people living here. This helps us to understand the experiences of people who live here. We spent time observing the interactions between staff and the people living here. We spoke with two members of the staff and the administrator. Records in relation to care planning, medication, residents’ monies, staff recruitment and fire safety were inspected. Before the site visit ‘comment cards’ were sent to all 6 people who live here and 5 were returned and to staff and 3 were returned. No surveys were returned by health and social care professionals who have contact with the home. In addition to the above the project manager provided the commission with information in the Annual Quality Assurance Assessment (AQAA). What the service does well: This home understands the importance of helping people to make an informed choice about where they live. They ensure that people have the information they need about the home and that they come to visit to meet with people and staff, so they can do that.

Prospective service users have the information they need to make an informed choice about where to live. Prospective users’ individual aspirations and needs are assessed. Prospective service users know that the home that they will choose will meet their needs and aspirations. Prospective service users have an opportunity to visit and to “test drive” the home. Each service user has an individual written contract or statement of terms and conditions with the home. The Commission consider Standard 2 the key standard to be inspected. JUDGEMENT – we looked at outcomes for the following standard(s): 2 Quality in this outcome area is good. People who come to live here can be assured that staff will have a good understanding of them and what their needs and desires are. This judgement has been made using available evidence including a visit to this service. EVIDENCE: All the people living here have lived here for a long time. The person who most recently moved in was assessed by a senior member of staff. This information was added to information from this person and their supporters, including health and social care staff. The staff at the home met with this person over a period of time so that they could get to understand them, their needs and wishes before they moved in. This person was given opportunities to spend time at the home and meet with other people living here and staff before deciding to live here permanently. This is the normal procedure for people wanting to come and live here. Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 10 Individual Needs and Choices The intended outcomes for Standards 6 – 10 are: 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Service users know their assessed and changing needs and personal goals are reflected in their individual Plan. Service users make decisions about their lives with assistance as needed. Service users are consulted on, and participate in, all aspects of life in the home. Service users are supported to take risks as part of an independent lifestyle. Service users know that information about them is handled appropriately, and that their confidences are kept. The Commission considers Standards 6, 7 and 9 the key standards to be inspected. JUDGEMENT – we looked at outcomes for the following standard(s): 6, 7 and 9. Quality in this outcome area is good. Improvements in the way that care is planned and the way that decisionmaking and managing risks is recorded means that people are enabled to live active and fulfilled lives. This judgement has been made using available evidence including a visit to this service. EVIDENCE: Each person living here has a plan of care and a key worker who helps them to develop their care plan and identify their aspirations, goals and related risks. Since the last inspection the project manager reports that further work has been undertaken in care planning and in sourcing opportunities that would help people to enhance their lifestyles. Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 11 We looked at some care plans and saw that people living here have differing abilities. Staff work with each person to help meet their potential and to ensure that they are supported to explore what opportunities might make their lives more meaningful and fulfilled and what might help them to develop new skills. Care plans show that associated risks are identified and where needed managed. People we spoke with say they are very happy with their lives and like the things they do and how staff support them to do this. We saw that people living at this home have freedom throughout the home and are encouraged to be independent and to use their skills. Throughout the site visit staff were heard offering choices to the people living here, for example whether to help with making lunch, what to eat for lunch and what to do with the day. Regular meetings are held and some people talked to the inspector about what is discussed during these. Staff and the project manager are helping people to further develop their skills so that they can run their own meetings. The Administrator acts as appointee for handling resident’s finances. All monies are kept safely and securely. The home has an internal auditing system carried out by the Treasurer of the Normanlea Society. All accounts are kept separate and two members of staff check monies at least once daily. We checked an account with the administrator and this was accurate and up to date and showed that receipts are kept for all expenditures. Care plans and discussions with staff and one person living here demonstrate that people are being assisted to manage their own monies to a level that suits their abilities. Where potential to improve that ability has been identified, work is ongoing to develop this skill. We did note that the keys to monies (and the medicines) are not kept as securely as they might be. The person in charge addressed this immediately. Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 12 Lifestyle The intended outcomes for Standards 11 - 17 are: 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17.

EVIDENCE: In surveys people told us that there are always activities arranged by the home that they can take part in. People who like to go out are supported to do so, people who like to be with staff do this and others like to remain at home. People living here join in activities that include karaoke, discos, art classes, skittles, going out for lunch, going shopping and going into Exmouth. Some people are attending an intensive course which is helping them to develop life Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 13 skills. In addition people told us and showed us photographs of their holidays, outings and events they have attended. Staff work hard to find other opportunities for people to participate in. This includes helping people to widen their social networks and to integrate into the local community. Links with the local community are good and there are a number of local clubs that people living here belong to. People are also supported to maintain relationships with family and friends and there is no restriction on visiting. On the day of the site visit people at the home were having a quiet day. One person had been to see the doctor, another was sitting watching TV and another was knitting. One person was out at a local club. Each person living here follows his or her own individual routine. Where group activities take place, this is a positive choice. Staff were seen to maintain residents’ privacy and dignity by knocking on bedroom doors before they enter and one member of staff talked of the importance of not talking about residents in front of others. On member of staff sensitively and discreetly supported one person to help make them safe whilst walking. Everyone we spoke with or who completed a survey said how much they enjoy the food. One said ‘lovely’, another said ‘I love the food’. Those who could, talked about the types of things they like and what they eat. Some people would prefer a much less healthy diet and staff do a good job ensuring there is a balance between choice and nutrition. People living here are involved in shopping, menu planning and cooking depending on their abilities. Although more recently the home has chosen to try internet shopping, so there are less opportunities for impromptu visits to the local supermarket. Photographic and symbolised menus are available to help people make choices about what to eat. Bowls of fresh fruit are available. Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 14 Personal and Healthcare Support The intended outcomes for Standards 18 - 21 are: 18. 19. 20. 21. Service users receive personal support in the way they prefer and require. Service users’ physical and emotional health needs are met. Service users retain, administer and control their own medication where appropriate, and are protected by the home’s policies and procedures for dealing with medicines. The ageing, illness and death of a service user are handled with respect and as the individual would wish. The Commission considers Standards 18, 19, and 20 the key standards to be inspected. JUDGEMENT – we looked at outcomes for the following standard(s): 18, 19 and 20. Quality in this outcome area is good. People are helped to stay healthy and the management of medications ensures their safety. Personal support is offered in a way that offers choice and promotes independence. This judgement has been made using available evidence including a visit to this service. EVIDENCE: In surveys people say that they always receive the medical support that they need. Each person is registered with a local GP and records indicate that regular visits are made to the dentist and opticians. Additional medical support is obtained as and when it is required. People living here remain well and healthy. They are supported to attend ‘well person’ appointments such as having smears and mammograms. Records and conversations with people show that people receive personal Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 15 support in the way they prefer and require. Gender choices are recognised regarding the delivery of personal care. Records also show that physical and emotional healthcare needs are monitored on a regular basis through the use of an holistic healthcare chart. Staff demonstrate a good understanding of each persons needs and of signs or symptoms of distress or pain and deal with this appropriately. The home uses a monitored dosage system of medication issued by the local pharmacy. Staff manage most people’s medication although work is ongoing to support some people to manage their own. One person showed us how they do this. Staff say that they have recently received training in managing medication. Records were seen and they indicate that medication is being administered appropriately and that records are kept up to date and are accurate. We did not note that the keys to the medicines cupboard (and to the monies) are not kept as securely as they might be. The person in charge addressed this immediately. Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 16 Concerns, Complaints and Protection The intended outcomes for Standards 22 – 23 are: 22. 23.

People are listened to and are protected from harm. This judgement has been made using available evidence including a visit to this service. EVIDENCE: No complaints have been received about this service by either the service itself or the commission. In surveys people told us that staff listen and act on what they say and that they always know who to speak with if they are not happy. During the site visit people told us they have no complaints and ‘love’ living here. They were observed being really comfortable in the company of staff and having relaxed and mutually respectful interactions. Records show that staff receive training in safeguarding adults and demonstrate an excellent understanding of what abuse is and a zero tolerance to it. They watch a video produced by the Department of Health and some have attended training sessions organised by the local authority. Some training is directly related to supporting residents to know about their right to be protected and not to be harmed in any way. The Normalea Society has an in house trainer who is trained to train other people by Devon County Council.

Others say they help to keep their bedrooms clean and tidy. On the day of the site visit the home was clean and as tidy as a home with an active family living there is expected to be. The home is accessible throughout for those who have mobility problems. Records show there is a maintenance and repair system in place. People told us they are involved in helping to choose furnishings and the decor, and talked of their involvement in the design of the garden. One person is about to have Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 18 their bedroom redecorated and showed us the paint colour they had chosen. They also talked about the new carpet they are having. There is a contract in place for the collection of clinical waste meaning that people are protected from cross infection. We saw staff washing their hands and using alcohol gel rub, as is good practice. Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 19 Staffing The intended outcomes for Standards 31 – 36 are: 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36.

JUDGEMENT – we looked at outcomes for the following standard(s): 32, 34 and 35. Quality in this outcome area is good. Recruitment, training of staff and staffing levels ensure that the people who live here are well supported and are safe. This judgement has been made using available evidence including a visit to this service. EVIDENCE: Normal staffing levels at Brimley are one member of staff in the morning, two in the afternoon, one in the evening and one member of staff sleeping at night. During this inspection there were two members of staff at the home. One of whom had supported someone to attend a hospital appointment. The home has it’s own bank of relief staff who work to help cover sickness and holidays and who work flexibly and with the permanent staff group to help the home respond to residents needs. People say that staff respond to their needs, are ‘lovely’ and ‘great’. Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 20 In surveys staff say they know who to contact in an emergency and that they get the support they need. During discussions with the inspector staff demonstrate an excellent understanding of the client group, their right to equality and a real commitment to best practice and care. The duty rota shows who is on duty in pictorial form so that people living here have a clear understanding of this. The project manager reports in the Annual Quality Assurance Assessment (AQQA) that staff receive a variety of training including care planning, safeguarding adults, introduction to autism, age discrimination and supervision skills for line managers. National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) is ongoing and two members of staff are currently undertaking NVQ level 4.

People live in a home that is well managed, is safe and is run in their best interests. The style of management ensures that improvement and best practice form the basic rights of the people living here. This judgement has been made using available evidence including a visit to this service. EVIDENCE: This service is managed by a project manager who is registered with the commission and who has successfully completed the Registered Managers Award. She has many years experience working in social care with people with a learning disability and demonstrates an excellent understanding of best Brimley DS0000021893.V373126.R01.S.doc Version 5.2 Page 22 practice, the needs of the individuals living here, the staff and of how this service can contribute to enhancing potentially vulnerable peoples lives. In the AQAA the manager reports that appropriate maintenance checks and contracts are in place for systems such as heating and electrics. Appropriate fire checks take place and staff demonstrate a good understanding of this. They also demonstrate a good understanding of peoples limitations in understanding fire drills and they know what to do to compensate for this. All staff receive mandatory training including 1st Aid, food hygiene and health and safety. Records show that the management team conducts itself in an atmosphere of openness and respect, in which people living here, their families, friends and staff feel valued. This has consistently been seen during successive inspections. More recently the Trustees have employed the services of a consultant to review the service provided within this home. The people living here, their families, shareholders, staff members and significant agencies were informed of the consultation and are currently being advised of the outcome of the report. Frequent meetings, open days, coffee mornings and social events are organised, which families are encouraged to attend.
