20th September 2016 - During a routine inspection pdf icon

The inspection took place on 20 September 2016. The inspection was announced as Creative Support provides domiciliary care to people in their own homes and we notified the provider on 16 September 2016 that we would be commencing inspection on 20 September 2016.

Creative Support – Manchester Extra Care Services are a domiciliary care service that provides personal care and support to people who live in their own flat or bungalow. The service is provided from two premises, Hibiscus Court and Shore Green. Both premises provided accommodation for people from the local community. Shore Green is specifically designed to provide care to people living with dementia or memory problems

The service had a registered manager. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are registered persons. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run.

The inspection took place with the registered manager and the locality manager. We spoke with members of the staff team including team leaders and care staff who told us that the registered manager was always available and approachable. We spoke with people who used the service and their relatives on the day of the inspection. We spoke to more people and relatives following the inspection.

We saw that peoples prescribed medicines were recorded when administered. We looked at how records were kept and spoke with the registered manager about how staff were trained to administer medicines and we found that the medicines administering, recording and auditing process was safe.

From looking at people’s support plans we saw they were person centred. ‘Person-centred’ is about ensuring the person is at the centre of everything and their individual wishes and needs and choices are taken into account. The support plans made good use of personal history and described individuals care, treatment, wellbeing and support needs. These were regularly reviewed and updated by the support workers and the registered manager.

People who use the service received person centred support and their individual needs and were respected and valued.

Individual support plans contained risk assessments. These identified risks and described the measures and interventions to be taken to ensure people were protected from the risk of harm. The care records we viewed also showed us that people’s health was monitored and referrals were made to other health care professionals where necessary for example: their GP and social worker.

Our conversations with people who use the service and their relatives during the inspection showed us that people who used the service were supported in their own homes by sufficient numbers of staff to meet their individual needs and wishes.

We looked at the recruitment process and found that relevant checks on staff took place and this process was safe. People who used the service chose their own staff and together with their families were a major part of the recruitment process.

People were encouraged to plan and participate in activities that were personalised and meaningful to them. People were supported regularly to play an active role in their local community, which supported and empowered their independence including; accessing local facilities and the wider community.

We saw compliments and complaints procedure was in place and this provided information on the action to take if someone wished to make a complaint and what they should expect to happen next. Staff knew how to access to advocacy services and safeguarding contact details if they needed it.

The Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) provides a legal framework for making particular decisions on behalf of people who may lack the mental capacity to do so for themselves. The Act requires that as far as possible people
