People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People and relatives said the home provided a caring environment for people. A person said, “The staff are wonderful. They care for us beautifully.” A relative said, “The staff have brought me to tears with their care, compassion and kindness.” The staff team was established so people were able to get to know the staff caring for them.

People were safe at the home. Staff knew how to provide safe care and support and reduce risk to people. Staff were safely recruited and fit to work with people who use care services. People had their medicines on time. The home was cleaned to a good standard and was fresh throughout.

People's needs were assessed before they went to the home to ensure staff could meet their needs. Staff were well-trained, skilled and knowledgeable about the people they supported. People were supported to have a balanced and nutritional diet. People praised the food served and said they had plenty of choice at mealtimes.

People’s care and support was personalised and given in line with their preferences. People’s healthcare needs were met by nurses and care workers at the home and visiting healthcare specialists. The home’s activity co-ordinator provided a range of individual and group activities for people.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

The home was a welcoming and friendly place. The acting manager and staff were approachable and kind. People and relatives had a say in how the home was run and said they would recommend it to others.
