During a routine inspection

We looked at comments from people who used the service and saw that they were happy with the care and treatment that they had received. There were comments such as "Excellent care" and "Five star food". We saw that staff protected people's privacy and maintained their dignity.

Care and attention was paid to people's individual needs so that they received effective and appropriate treatment. Staff were trained to understand the specific needs of people requiring end-of-life care. There were facilities in place to deal with emergencies and any adverse incidents were dealt with effectively and recorded appropriately.

Staff were supported and managed effectively and were encouraged to up-date their skills and knowledge. Professional and organisational skills were regularly assessed and further development encouraged.
