“We strive to preserve and maintain dignity, individuality and privacy of all our service users within a warm and caring atmosphere, and in doing so will be sensitive to their ever changing needs.

“Service users are encouraged to participate in the development of individualised care plans, and the involvement of family and friends is greatly valued.
