Following a recent inspection from Birmingham Environmental Health, 24 Devonshire Road was awarded a five for food hygiene, the highest rating available. This was on the heels of the CQC ‘Good’ rating received following their inspection in March this year.
24 Devonshire Road is a small specialist care home delivering support to adults with mental health needs, learning disabilities and autism. Currently supporting four individuals, the home has capacity for a maximum of five service users. Bashrat Hussain, the on-site home manager, has a deputy manager and a team of specialist support workers to provide focussed, secure support twenty-four hours a day.
Phil Tinsley, Business Operations Manager for Step Forward Support, said:
