Marion House achieves ‘Good’ rating with CQC

We are pleased to announce that, following an inspection on 5th March 2019, Marion House has been rated ‘Good’ in their first full inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Marion House is a specialist residential home providing outcome focused care for adults with autism, who may have behaviours that challenge and associated complex needs. The home, situated in the village of Borrowash four miles from Derby, originally opened in April 2018.

The full report (published on the CQC website) highlights many areas of positive practice, including:

  • There was a friendly, homely and welcoming atmosphere for people using the service. Care and support plans had been developed that were subject to ongoing review to ensure people’s changing needs were identified and planned for.
  • People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible.
  • People had a say in how the service was run by accessing regular meetings, where tailored support was offered to maximise input from people using the service.
  • A range of activities were on offer which reflected people’s interests.
  • Good governance processes were in place, alongside comprehensive auditing checks, including management of any complaints, to ensure quality care was delivered.
  • Staff respected and promoted people’s dignity and made sure they supported them in the way they wished, whilst encouraging them to be as independent as possible.

“The Marion House team are delighted with the result of our very first CQC inspection. This report is a clear reflection of the good care and support we provide for our residents. We look forward to the future, and the continued growth and development of our service.”Emma Sutton, Service Manager

Congratulations to Emma and the rest of the team at Marion House.
