“Staff told us how they changed their style to suit the person they supported and to pick up on people’s moods. People’s positive comments about the staff who supported them showed their approach was successful.”
Home care service manager Sharon Carter said: “We are over the moon about the report – it’s fantastic and the staff have worked really hard.”
Residents quoted in the report said they felt safe and supported by staff, who understand their needs.
