People’s experience of using this service:


• People received care that met their individual needs from a team of caring and dedicated staff.

• Staff took time to get to know people and responded well to their care needs. Where possible, people’s preferences were met and they were encouraged to maintain their independence.

• Staff assessed and reduced potential risks to people’s safety.

• Staff were recruited and trained effectively to ensure people’s health and wellbeing was promoted.

• People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible.

• There were effective systems in place to monitor and improve the service. If issues of concern were raised, management responded promptly and appropriately.

• The registered manager had very recently been promoted from the position of deputy manager.
