People were assisted by staff who knew what to do to protect their rights. People had access to healthcare when they needed,” and “People had positive and caring relationships with staff who supported them. Staff supported people with warmth, respect and kindness.”

Carolyn Farmer, home manager at Edgeley House, said: “We are always looking at ways to improve the quality of care to our residents, and this latest CQC report is welcome news. Our staff work tirelessly to meet the needs of our residents and this positive inspection is a testament to their work ethic and commitment.
