Springfield Court enhanced and enriched people's lives by providing innovative recreational activity programmes. For example, a dementia art programme was implemented by the service to encourage people living with dementia to express themselves through art. This was supported by relatives who volunteered weekly to assist people with the art sessions. A person who lived at the service had shown improvement in their ability to concentrate and throughout the therapeutic art sessions they clearly demonstrated a sense of fulfilment and pride in their work. Therapeutic activities like art meant that people who lived at the service had access to recreational activities that generated a positive impact on their mental wellbeing.
Springfield Court was very well-led and had a committed workforce. The registered manager had been in post for 15 years and was also a legal director for the business. There was a clinical lead who had been employed for 12 years and worked closely with the registered manager in a supernumerary role, this meant that clinical oversight was robust because the clinical lead was able to quality assure areas of clinical practice at the service on a daily basis.
The providers lived on site and had owned the service for 30 years. They are involved in the daily running of the service, the providers acknowledged the whole staff team contribution to maintaining a long-standing history of compliance with regulations and the previous two inspections were rated good.
