About the service

A Star Care Services is a domiciliary care agency providing personal care to people living in Solihull and the surrounding areas. The service provides support to people over the age of 65 and those living with dementia. At the time of our inspection there were 37 people using the service. Not everyone who used the service received personal care. CQC only inspects where people receive personal care. This is help with tasks related to personal hygiene and eating. Where they do, we also consider any wider social care provided.

People were supported by staff who knew them well and were able to keep them safe and protect them from avoidable harm.

People had their needs assessed and staff used care plans and risk assessments which were up to date and easily accessible. Staff had been recruited safely and were well trained to provide support to the people in their care.

Medicines were managed safely by competent staff and measures were in place for the management of infection, prevention and control.
