This service has a lovely homely feel to it. It has three residents, supported by a fabulous staff team who make you feel extremely welcome and Karen the manager demonstrates excellent leadership skills. I have been to many social events organised by the service, as am known to the residents in a social capacity and cannot relay how much I have seen these three young gentleman develop in themselves, which shows what a fabulous job everyone is doing. The service is extremely person centred and it is evident within the home. Special thanks must go to Karen, Matt, David, James, Lisa, Debbie, Rosie and the residents for making the visits such an enjoyable one. I would highly recommend anybody looking for a placement (whether for themselves or others) to view Tushmore Lane and can guarantee you wont be disappointed!!!Phillip Harrison, Visitor to the Service

The care and support plans are detailed and looked at monthly and updated if required. It is so important to get to know each person and understand them, so we are aware of what can distress or upset them and how we can defuse a situation, even sometimes without it happening.Consensus colleague – quote from CQC inspection report - January 2015
