A CARE home for residents with learning disabilities has been praised for its ability to help people with their independence.

Brook House Residential Home, in Burnley, has received praise for the 'kind, caring and attentive nature of its staff' from the Care Quality Commission, the body that inspects and regulates the quality of care in England, following an inspection of its services in September.

The inspection report, which rated the home as good, sets out how residents received 'person-centred support that is appropriate and inclusive' to their needs.

The Padiham Road home provides personal care to nine people with learning and physical disabilities. The service can accommodate 10 people.

Health watchdogs rated the home good in the safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led categories.

Details in the inspector's report said: People were supported by caring and respectful staff. People told us staff were kind and attentive and our observations confirmed this.

"We saw they were polite, respectful and showed compassion to people.

"One person told us, "Everyone helps me, they are all my friends. Staff are so supportive."
