‘Staff were kind and compassionate when working with people. They knew people well and were aware of their history, preferences, likes and dislikes. People’s privacy and dignity were upheld. People participated in a range of activities within the home or in the community and received the support they needed to help them to do this. People were able to choose how they spent their time and what activities they participated with. Some people had been supported to find employment.’
