People’s experience of using this service:

People and their relatives spoke very highly about the home, the management and the staff. The Gables was very much seen as each person’s home. They were fully involved in decisions about their care and the running of the home.

People received care, which met their needs. Guidance was in place to support people consistently and in the way, they wanted. Care plans were informative. People had access to other health care professionals when they needed it.

People were supported to pursue their interests and hobbies. Regular social activities were organised for the enjoyment of the people living at the home. These were kept under review. People were provided with sufficient home cooked food and drink to maintain their health and wellbeing.

Staff knew people extremely well. They were extremely caring and showed compassion in their approach. People and their relatives expressed a high level of satisfaction with the care. People were very much listened too and provided with the care and support that they needed and wanted. People felt confident to talk about any concerns that they may have. Where people had made suggestions for improvements these had been acted upon very promptly.

Staff had received ongoing training and support to enable them to provide care that was effective. There had been very little turnover of staff with many working in the home in excess of 10 to 15 years. Staff were valued and enjoyed supporting the people living at The Gables.

The service was well led. There were suitable quality assurance systems in place to assess, monitor and improve the quality and safety of the service provided.
