Comments included, “I look forward to coming every week”, “They treat you as a person and you are accepted” and “They explained all the options before admission.”

People told us their health care needs were met within the service. They said they had access to a range of therapies. We found that assessments and care plans were produced to guide staff in how to support people. We found that the care plans could be more personalised.
