What the care home does well
People who are interested in living at the home are given clear information to help them make a decision. People are asked what support they need and how they would like this to be done. People told us they like living at the home as it is a relaxed and homely atmosphere. They are treated with respect and are supported to make decisions for themselves. They are helped to remain as independent as possible following support needs and risk management assessments. They say the staff are always friendly and attentive and they feel safe living at the home. There are plenty of things for people to do to keep them occupied. People feel they are listened to and some changes have been made as a result. People are helped to stay in good health.

The home has increased the amount and variety of information available to people who are interested in living there. Staff training has increased and includes specialist areas so people can be better supported. People on the waiting list are kept in touch by the home newsletter.
