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

People and their families were provided with exceptional person-centred care that was planned and delivered in line with their changing needs and circumstances. End of life care exceeded people’s expectations. This was centred around ensuring people and families spent time together. Staff worked together and were passionate in supporting people. The team worked to meet people's wishes and ensure their expectations were met.

People and families understood how to complain but felt they had no need because the care provided could not be faulted. People were cared for by staff who knew how to keep them safe and how to raise concerns if needed. Sufficient, knowledgeable staff were available to meet people's needs. People received their medicines regularly and systems were in place for the safe management and supply of medicines. The home was clean and odour free and staff took pride in keeping the home clean and minimising the risk of the spread of infection.

People's needs were assessed, and care was planned in line with best practice. Care was delivered by staff who received support and guidance to meet people's needs. People enjoyed the meal time experience and were offered choices. 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.

People were cared for by staff who were caring and who people liked and valued. People and their relatives felt involved and supported in decision making. People's privacy was respected and people were supported to maintain their independence in ways that were important to them.
