"The survey outcome corresponds with the responses we have from Four Seasons' own Quality of Life programme.

"This enables residents, their relatives and care professionals to give us instant feedback on a day to day basis about any aspect of care quality by using iPads placed in the home with a touch-screen questionnaire linked to purpose designed software.

"We use the feedback to find and fix issues or niggles and to improve the residents' experience.

"This feedback has been recording an average of more than 96 per cent overall satisfaction rating across our homes in the region over recent months and this is improving month by month as the quality of life programme effects are felt."
