A supported living service based in Lincolnshire, Priory Supported Living Lincolnshire, has been rated ‘good’ overall and in every care category by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the health and social care watchdog.
In the report, following a recent inspection, inspectors said: “We observed people were supported in a kind and caring way by staff”. They went on to say, “Staff looked after the same people where this was possible which enables both parties to develop professional bonds and friendship. Staff we spoke with said they enjoyed supporting the people who used the service and treated them as they would their own family, with respectful care and support.”
Inspectors said, “Relatives we spoke with told us the staff cared about people using the service and told us this helped them to feel reassured their relations were being well looked after. We received the following comments; ‘The staff genuinely care’, ‘Staff seem to like my relative’, ‘People always look well cared for’.”
Inspectors mentioned how people are supported to do activities of their choosing. Some people currently choose to go horse riding, swimming and on day trips to local attractions. They are encouraged to visit family members.

Janet Burgin, Registered Manager, said: “We pride ourselves on enabling the people we support to live as independently as possible. The report shows that we offer great opportunities to people and that they really benefit from the personalised support our team provides. I would like to thank my team for all their hard work.”
Hayden Knight, Managing Director of Priory Adult Care for the South East said: “This is a great supported living service which really enables people to live as independently as possible. I am sure that the staff team there will keep up their brilliant efforts.”
