OverallRead overall summary
We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection checked whether the registered provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.
This inspection took place on 18 March 2016 and was announced. The registered provider was given 48 hoursâ notice because the location was a small care home run for one adult as a family home. The person has lived as a family member since childhood. He is often out during the day; we needed to be sure someone would be in.
The inspection was undertaken by an adult social care inspector.
Before our inspection visit on 18 March 2016, we reviewed the information we held on the service. This included any notifications we had received from the registered provider, about incidents that affected the health, safety and welfare of the person who lived at the home. We also checked to see if any information concerning the care and welfare of people who lived at the home had been received.
We spoke with a range of people about the service. They included the registered provider and the person who lived at the home and health and social care professionals. We also spent time observing the interactions between the person who lived at the home and the registered provider. This helped us to gain a balanced overview of what the person experienced at the home.
We looked at the personâs care records, the arrangements in place for work and leisure activities, and records relating to the management of the home.
