Deborah Ivanova, Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, said;
“We found that Sefton Hall has a strong commitment to achieving positive outcomes for people living with dementia. The ethos of the home is intended to make people feel valued, and supported with an aim to enhance the quality of their life.
“The layout and furnishing has been designed to promote the independence and
wellbeing of people who lived with dementia. People who like to move around are encouraged to use communal areas throughout the building, with areas set up as a pub, or kitchen or even a shed, where people could relax.
“To receive an Outstanding rating overall is a real achievement, and I would like to congratulate all the staff for the work they do in providing an Outstanding service to the people in their care.”
