Inspire Service Hailed By Care Inspectorate
Support staff at a service for people with learning disabilities run by Inspire in Aberdeenshire have been praised following a recent inspection.
Care Inspectorate staff said they were impressed by the relationships the team at St. James's Court, in Inverurie, had with the people who live there.
The report, published on the 4th October 2018, noted that the development of core teams to help individuals who live at St James's Court had been beneficial and provided a more consistent level of support for those with complex needs.
One parent, who was not named in the report, said: "He is supported by a consistent team of staff which has made all the difference to him."
The report also stated that: "An activity co-ordinator helped people who used the service to access a range of social events both in St. James's Court and externally, in addition to personalised activities where people were supported by their core staff".
The report graded St. James's Court as a 5 (Very Good) for Quality of Care and Support and a 4 (Good) for Quality of Management and Leadership.
St. James’s Court is a purpose-built facility in Inverurie, opened by Aberdeenshire Council in 2015, where Inspire provides housing support to 24 people with a range of support needs living in their own flats within the service.
