People’s experience of using this service:

People at The Manor House were valued as individuals and treated with care and compassion. Staff knew each person well and provided person centred care. Staff engaged positively with people throughout the day. Staff knew how to communicate with people, so people understood the options available to them. The registered manager, director and staff extended their care and compassion to people’s family members and saw them as part of the home’s community.

Staff promoted people’s dignity and privacy. Staff understood their responsibilities to protect people from abuse and discrimination. They knew to report any concerns and ensure action was taken.

People’s views were sought, and opportunities taken to improve the service. Staff were supervised, supported and clear about what was expected of them. People’s care was provided in line with best practice. People were cared for by staff who received regular training that was tailored to meet the needs of the people living in the service.

People, relatives, staff and professionals gave positive feedback about the registered manager and director. They were role models and staff had adopted the registered manager’s approach to the care of the people living in the service.

People lived in a service that kept them safe. Staff had been recruited safely and had received training on how to recognise and report abuse. People were supported to take their medicines safely. Audits and checks were carried out, so any problem could be identified and rectified.

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

People’s needs and preferences regarding food and drink were known and respected. People told us they liked the food and staff gave examples of things they did to help ensure people got the food they liked, whilst maintain their health.

People’s views were sought and listened to in relation to the home. People were offered a variety of different ways to spend their time. Staff understood what people enjoyed doing and constantly worked to offer a variety of activities based on people’s preferred pastimes and hobbies.
