Staff success was recognised and celebrated.

Care records contained extensive, clear information covering all aspects of people's individualised care and support. Risk assessments were comprehensive and information about people was written in a respectful and personalised way.

People and their relatives were involved in the planning and delivery of their care, and regularly asked for feedback which was acted upon when appropriate. Staff were encouraged to be actively involved in service development.

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.
