Carers will strive to preserve and maintain the dignity; individuality and privacy of all Residents, within a warm and caring atmosphere, and in doing so, will be sensitive to changing needs, medical / therapeutic (for physical and mental welfare), cultural, psychological, spiritual, emotional social and occupational needs.

Residents are encouraged to participate in the development of their individualised Care Plan, with the involvement of family where appropriate, is greatly valued.
