Five supported living sites in Bucks rated 'excellent'

New inspections have given five supported living sites in Buckinghamshire an 'excellent' rating.

The Council have been in to see Hightown's buildings in Aylesbury and Amersham, among others, and were impressed with care plans in place for vulnerable adults.

Sebastian Moh, Head of Care and Supported Housing for Buckinghamshire, said: 

"I am thrilled that five of our services have received excellent ratings from Bucks Council. Our staff strive to provide the best quality of care which is demonstrated in these brilliant results.

"An excellent rating is the result of a tremendous amount of hard work and commitment. Congratulations to all the services on their achievement."

An excellent rating is categorised as a service performing exceptionally well and in certain key areas is exceeding the regional standards.

The Housing Association say this demonstrates the commitment and dedication staff at Hightown have in providing safe, first-class care to service users. 

An inspection of all areas of support delivery was undertaken to ensure that the schemes are providing a safe, caring, effective and responsive service that meets the needs of their service users.

Inspectors assessed various aspects of the schemes, including quality of support plans and risk assessments, delivery of activities and support in the community, health and safety, accident and incident reporting, and medication procedures to name but a few.

Inspectors noted that they were impressed by the schemes' excellent person-centred support and comprehensive support plans.
