Elysium Healthcare are proud to announce that another care home has been rated Outstanding overall by CQC. London Care Partnership, part of Elysium Healthcare, is made up of nine services which support younger adults with learning disabilities or an autistic spectrum disorder.
The care home, on 1a Upper Brighton Road, Surbiton was inspected in September 2018 and rated Outstanding for being responsive and well-led. It was also rated Good for being safe, effective and caring.
The home was judged to provide a warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere where the young people’s safety is paramount. Families and carers said people were very happy and enjoyed living at the home.
People using the service were encouraged to have balanced diets in line with their preferences and meal selection was used to help develop people’s lifestyle and decision-making skills.
Care plans recorded people’s interests, health, needs and aspirations providing the structure to help them live their lives and make decisions. There is a range of activities which include visits to a farm, companion cycling, exercise walks, swimming, shopping and gym visits.
All homes within London Care Partnership Ltd cultivate close links with services, such as speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and district nurses. There is a culture of supportive, clear, honest, transparent and enabling leadership. Within its first year of registration, 1a Upper Brighton Road achieved accreditation from the National Autistic Society, for ensuring and sustaining effective and person-centred practice.
Joy Chamberlain, Chief Executive Officer said:
“London Care Partnership services have brought together excellence in care delivery, exceptional buildings and an experienced team of staff who are passionate about what they do. This is evidenced by the regulation status held with the CQC.”
CQC stated in the report that:
“Staff enabled people to make progress by adopting a very person-centred approach. They recognised people’s achievements, highlighted them and supported the young people to also recognise and celebrate them. They achieved this by having a thorough knowledge of people’s individual communication and sensory needs and meeting them in a patient and measured way.”
