The CQC were pleased with the high level of staff expertise. They saw "trained and experienced" staff supporting residents "in a calm and caring manner".
The home's residents have "person-centred" care plans and their views and preferences are always taken into account: one person indicated they wanted support to go on holiday, and this was provided.
