Focus of Service We aim to assist individuals to develop independence using a multi-professional approach targeted towards resident’s needs and aspirations.

People’s privacy and dignity were respected. Staff had a caring attitude towards people. We observed staff smiling and laughing with people and offering support. There was a good rapport between people and staff.

The registered manager operated an ‘open door’ policy and welcomed feedback on any aspect of the service. There was a stable staff team who said communication in the home was good and they always felt able to make suggestions. They confirmed management were open and approachable.
