This is a great opportunity and a great place to work, look what was said at our last QCQ review by relatives and Staff, “One relative told us how the person who used the service visited them regularly, but was always happy to return to the service. They explained how this showed them the person felt safe living there. Relatives of people who used the service told us, "They [staff] seem to know all their little idiosyncrasies and how best to support them" and "They definitely know their needs. They seem to be able to cope with the challenges." Staff we spoke with said, "My manager is the absolute best manager I have had. It is very much an open door; if you have a problem you can go in and talk it though and work it out" and "The manager is quite hands-on. They are very approachable and friendly and manage really well to listen to everyone."
