Holland House in Corby, Northamptonshire, specialises in supporting adults with a range of complex needs and behaviours associated with Prader-Willi Syndrome and learning disabilities.
PWS is a genetic condition that means people with the condition will have an, insatiable desire for food, which can make the person eat excessively, resulting in obesity.
The residential home was rated outstanding for being responsive and well-led following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), 23 October, 8, 11 & 12 November 2019.
It achieved the score of good for the safe, effective and caring categories.
The CQC report highlighted that each person had a daily activity programme individualised to meet their specific preferences and wishes. A 'My perfect week' timetable, and a 'what's working and what's not working for me' tool were used to continually evaluate the activities people took part in to ensure they were relevant and still enjoyable for the person. People enjoyed full and active lifestyles, such as, going to clubs, discos, to the local pub, meeting up with friends and partners, going for local and country walks, swimming, bowling, the cinema, horse riding and to the gym.
The providers core values of choice and respect, ambition and imagination, reliability, and professionalism, honesty and integrity, responsibility and accountability, inclusivity and being supportive were all fully embedded into the culture and ethos at Holland House.
