Weston Villa, in Kettering, Northamptonshire, is celebrating having been rated as ‘Good’ in all five key areas by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)
Weston Villa was praised by inspectors, for providing a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led service.
Inspectors reported that the service was committed to supporting people to have maximum choice and control of their lives. The service had a person-centred and inclusive culture and staff were skilled in providing good care and support to people.
Inspectors observed that people’s outcomes were consistently good. People were well supported in making good food choices to ensure they maintained a balanced diet. The inspection said, “People were reaching their personal goals and achieving their ambitions.”
Inspectors also reported that people were well treated and had developed good relationships with staff. A culture of dignity and respect was promoted by the registered manager and staff treated people with kindness and respect. Staff said, “Respect is the most important value here, it is very important to me to respect the person and support them the best we can.”
The inspectors agreed that people’s support focused on them having as many opportunities as possible for them to gain new skills and become more independent. People were supported to access the community for activities and encouraged and supported to shop and cook, clean their own flats and do their own laundry.
The inspector also found there was strong and effective leadership at the service, noting the registered manager and management team provide good quality care that achieves positive outcomes for people. Inspectors observed examples of goal achievements for people including more positive relationships with food and healthy weight control.
During the inspection the inspector spoke with two people living at the home, the registered manager, care coordinator and three support workers. The inspectors also reviewed people’s care records, as well as medical records and records relating to the environment and management of the service.
Sue Grant, Service Manager at Weston Villa said, “I am extremely proud of our team who are committed to enabling the people we support to make choices, to develop the skills to live more independently and to enjoy a great quality of life. We are delighted that the inspector noted our person-centred and inclusive culture, rating us ‘Good’ across all five key areas.”
