Some of the people who use this service have difficulty understanding and responding to verbal communication. During our visit we were able to hold a verbal conversation with four people. Other people were able to make comments about specific issues, such as the meals, some of the information about people's experiences of this service was

gathered through our observations, review of records and discussions with the manager and care staff.

staff. Some people told us that the staff ask them about their preferences, for example,
