The CQC has rated Healey House, in Rochdale, Lancashire as Outstanding following an inspection in September.
Healey House provides accommodation and personal support for people with a learning disability. At the time of the inspection there were nine people living at the home.
Inspectors were particularly impressed with the level of interaction with those in the home’s care and the pride staff take. In their report they noted:
- There was an excellent standard of organisation within the service that fully supported continuous improvement and ensured people received a high-quality service that met their needs and expectations.
- People living in the home told us they felt safe and staff treated them well.
- People’s independence was actively encouraged. The registered manager and staff displayed clear resolve to make a positive difference to people’s lives. Staff encouraged and supported people to access activities within the community.
Debbie Westhead, Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care in the North, said “We found the quality of care provided at Healey House in Whitworth, Rochdale to be outstanding.
“It was clear that staff at this service placed people at the heart of the care being provided and really promoted their right to be independent and determine how they live their lives.
“Our inspectors saw lovely relationships between staff and people living at the home with caring, good humoured and friendly interactions.
“All the staff at Healey House should be very proud of the care they are providing and I hope other providers look to their example of what outstanding care should look like.”
