The Directors and the management of the home are committed to the maintenance of the highest standards throughout, but from time to time people who use our service and their representatives may wish to make a complaint.
The company is committed to following the procedure that has been adopted.
Firstly a complaint should be brought to the attention of the Manager either verbally or in writing. If it is not possible for the complaint to be resolved, after discussion with the Manager, then it would be referred formally to the company Directors. On receipt of a formal complaint the Director will send out an acknowledgement letter advising the complainant, of the action that will be taken to investigate and try and resolve the compliant within the next 28 days. If the matter still remains unresolved the complainant has the right to take the complaint to the Registering Authorities.
