People and their loved ones told us they were supported by committed and compassionate staff. One person said, “I have loved every minute of being here, the staff are so lovely.”

The visions and values of the service put people at the centre of their care and this was shared by all staff.

People were supported by staff who understood how to keep them safe and how to report any concerns. People and their loved ones were involved in planning their care.

End of life care was individualised and based on people’s preferences. People were encouraged and supported to stay well and independent for as long as possible. Staff worked closely with health professionals to manage people’s health conditions.

People told us the food was good and that they had plenty of choice. All staff knew people well including those who worked in the kitchen or laundry. There were affectionate and humorous interactions throughout the inspection.
