What the care home does well
People live in a spacious and light home. People have large rooms with ensuite facilities. There are some very dedicated members of staff working with people living in the home. Some staff are aware of what constitutes abuse and report it to their manager according to the service`s procedure. People living in the home have high ratios of support staff. Some relatives added comments on their surveys, such as "as far as we are concerned, Woodhouse has given *** back [his/her] dignity and certainly her self confidence" "all the staff are extremely courteous" "on the whole, staff are friendly and polite" "I couldn`t ask for a more dedicated team"
