Praise for March living scheme
Inspectors have praised a scheme in March which provides support for people with learning disabilities.
The March Supported Living Scheme was rated as ‘good’ across the board by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an unannounced inspection in July last year.
The scheme caters for up to 21 people with a learning disability.
Inspectors found the site safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.
The report states: “The records we looked at and our observations showed us that staff supported people in a way they liked to be supported. We saw people’s independent living skills were respected.”
Inspectors found that people’s privacy and dignity were consistently respected by all staff.
The inspection team also highlighted the scheme’s recruitment processes, which they described as “robust”.
Leadership was also praised and described as good. “The management team provided good leadership and ensured a high standard of care for people living at the scheme,” said the team of inspectors.
