The Care Quality Commission has found the quality of care provided by 21 Lime Street – Learning Disability and Autism, Evesham, to be Outstanding overall following an inspection carried out in May. It is the only residential care service in Worcestershire to receive this highest rating. Across England just 1 in every 300 learning disability care homes have been rated outstanding.
Inspectors found that people were at the heart of the service and saw examples of how the home had improved the quality of people’s lives. Staff were caring and compassionate and people were provided with safe, responsive, caring, effective and well-led care.
A full report of the inspection has been published on CQC’s website: http://www.cqc.org.uk/location/1-130152296
Andrea Sutcliffe, Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, said:
“The quality of care which our inspectors found here was exceptional and I am very pleased that we can celebrate the service’s achievements.
“An outstanding service is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work and commitment. I would like to thank and congratulate everyone involved.”
