They were cared for by a consistent staff team who had received sufficient training to carry out their roles. People received assistance to take their medicines as prescribed.

People were supported to access health care services and weekly visits were undertaken by the GP. People’s dietary needs were assessed and where needed, people received support to eat and drink.

People and their relatives knew how to complain, although no complaints had been received in the last 12 months. No people were receiving end of life care at the time of our inspection visit.
