At the time of our inspection the provider confirmed they were providing personal care to 5 people.

There was not a registered manager in post. The service had a manager that was going through the process of registering with the CQC to become the 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.

People told us they felt safe. Staff had received training to enable them to recognise signs and symptoms of abuse and how to report them.

People were supported to access a variety of health professional as and when required.

Staff provided care and support in a caring and meaningful way. They knew the people who used the service well. People were comfortable around staff and confident in communicating with them.
