The report said residents received 'person-centred care' and staff made decisions only with their 'consent and involvement'.

"People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests," it said.

Residents were safe and supported by 'friendly and caring staff', while an open and honest culture was promoted by management.
