Creative Support Hampton Crescent is an extra care housing scheme for people aged 55 years and over. Creative support provide on site emergency response and planned domiciliary care to people within their own homes in the scheme. At the time of this inspection 27 people used the service.

At our last inspection we rated the service good. At this inspection we found the evidence continued to support the rating of good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.

People told us they felt safe and well supported by the support workers from the service. The provider followed robust recruitment checks, to employ suitable support workers, and there continued to be sufficient support workers employed to ensure domiciliary care visits were carried out in a timely way. People’s medicines were managed safely.

Support workers continued to receive appropriate training to give them the knowledge and skills they required to carry out their roles. This included training on the administration of medicines and on how to protect people from the risk of harm. Support workers received regular supervision to fulfil their roles effectively and had yearly appraisals to monitor their work performance.

People were supported to have choice and control of their lives and the support workers supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Where support workers prepared and cooked meals for people, people told us they enjoyed their meals.

Support workers knew about people’s individual care needs and care plans were person-centred and detailed. People gave us positive feedback about the support workers and described them as “Excellent, caring and knowledgeable.” We were told the support workers treated people who used the service with compassion, dignity and respect.

People told us that the service was well managed and organised. The registered manager and deputy manager assessed and monitored the quality of care provided to people. People and support workers were asked for their views and their suggestions were used to continuously improve the service.
