People received excellent opportunities to participate in different activities. The service demonstrated how they consistently met the characteristics of providing excellent care. People were at the heart of the service and the registered manager and staff were fully committed to providing high-quality person-centred care. The staff always responded to people’s changing needs and strived to provide excellent care and support.

People were protected from risk to their health and wellbeing as comprehensive risk assessments were in place.

Good practice was in place to protect people from the risk of infection. Lessons were learned and monitored when things went wrong.

People had their diverse needs identified and met by competent staff. People were supported to have a balanced diet. Staff collaborated with other healthcare professionals and made referrals when people required professional input. The service was adapted around people’s needs and preferences. They were encouraged to be involved in the decoration of the premises. The provider and their staff team were working in line with the principles of the mental capacity act (MCA).
