People’s experience of using this service and what we found

We received overwhelmingly positive feedback about the leadership of service, which centred around the experience of people. The provider continued to promote a culture of truly exceptional person-centred care and enabled staff to support people to achieve outcomes that far exceeded expectations.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

The home was warm and welcoming and people were comfortable and at ease. The provider had maintained the home to a high-standard and continued to support people to be as independent as possible whilst living at the home. People had access to a variety of facilities including a café, shop, a licensed pub, cinema, rooftop garden and a bowling green.

Staff were extremely caring and thoughtful and respected people as individuals. People told us they truly felt at home and that staff extended the same kindness to their friends and families.

People told us they felt safe in the care of staff. They were protected from avoidable harm and received care and support tailored to meet their individual needs. People received their medicines on time and as prescribed.
