42a Haddon is a residential care home, provided by MacIntyre Care, that is registered to provide personal care for up to 40 adults with learning disabilities and autism.
On the basis of our conversations and observations, 42a Haddon was found to be a bright, friendly and welcoming community of people living fulfilled and contented lives. Every person we spoke to told us they felt happy at the Home. The people we engaged with appeared to be supported by friendly, caring and competent staff who encourage and empower residents to be as independent as possible. We found staff at all levels to be welcoming and receptive of the visit, taking pride in their roles and demonstrating patience and rapport with the people they support. The visiting team of Authorised Representatives noted that the ability to live empowered lives was very much enabled by the high levels of dedication of the support provided in their home. Whilst there were some areas identified for improvement, these were practical and environmental issues, as opposed to quality of care, which was highly praised.
