The service also received a "good" rating at its last inspection which was in November 2017.

Home manager Leanne Batten-Smith has been leading the service since the summer of 2022.

The report added: “People's individual needs were met by the adaptation, design, and decoration of the premises.

“All parts of the home were accessible including garden areas. There were different rooms or areas on each floor to help meet people's individual needs.

“These included The Wilton Arms – a pub which served alcohol and people could have a game of dominoes or catch up with others, a cinema room with large TV, surround sound and black out curtains.

“Garden and sensory rooms were available. Both were calm and relaxing spaces with the garden room housing an array of plants and the sensory room had relaxing lights and colourful fish tanks.”
