People's experience using the service:

• People received a service that was safe. The provider had systems and processes in place to protect people from the risk of harm and abuse. Medicines were managed safely, however there had been a number of medicines errors within the last six months, the provider was addressing this and supporting staff with extra training to minimise the risk to people.

• People received care and support from staff who were trained sufficiently and had the right skills and knowledge, this led to good outcomes for people.

• Staff respected and promoted people's independence, dignity and privacy, staff developed caring relationships with the people they supported.
