We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the 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 22 May 2015. We gave the provider 48 hours’ notice of our visit to the service because the location was a care home for younger adults who are often out during the day; we needed to be sure that someone would be in.

The inspection was carried out by one Adult Social Care inspector and a Specialist Advisor who had experience of supporting people who have a learning disability and complex mental health needs.

There were nine people living at Ann House when we carried out our inspection. During the inspection we spoke with six people who lived in the home, two support staff, two registered nurses, two ancillary staff, the deputy manager and the registered manager of the home. We observed care and support in communal areas of the home and looked at the care records for four people. We also looked at records that related to how the home was managed.

Before the inspection, the provider completed a Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We reviewed the information we held about the service, including the information in the PIR, before we visited the home. We also contacted the local authority social work teams to obtain their views of the home.
