Consultations With Residents

The Manager undertakes constant quality assurance exercises by primarily speaking with our residents who and can state their individual preferences on daily living and have a direct influence over the daily menu. Family members and close friends are also consulted for their valuable views/input.

Care Plan Reviews

Care plans are reviewed on an ongoing basis and at least once a month. These are done in consultation with the resident and relatives who are given access to the plan at all times.


If a resident or relative wishes to make a formal complaint, the complaint is taken seriously and dealt with in accordance with The essential standards. The Management work closely with our residents to ensure that there should be no need to complain as we endeavour to meet all needs.
