About the service
OFH Care Ltd is a domiciliary care agency. It provides personal care to young people and/or adults with a range of needs living in their own homes. At the time of our inspection the service was providing care to 3 young people who had sustained brain injuries at birth and who were disabled.
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’s experience of using this service and what we found
There were systems in place to monitor the quality of the service and recognise when improvements were required and these were recorded.
A relative told us their family member was receiving safe care. Where there were risks to people’s safety and wellbeing, these had been assessed and the provider had done all that was reasonably practicable to lessen those risks.
People's care and risk management plans set out the care tasks they required help with and these contained personalised information about people and their preferences for how they liked to be supported.
People received their medicines in a safe way and there were systems in place to help safeguard them from abuse.
People's needs were assessed and planned for. Their health was monitored and they had access to other healthcare services. People were supported with their nutritional needs if this was part of their care plan.
The provider made sure there were enough regular staff to support people and staff arrived on time at people’s homes. Staff received inductions, training and supervision and felt supported in their roles.
The provider sought feedback from people, relatives and staff and used this to develop the service. People and staff were confident they could raise any concerns they had with the registered manager and felt they would be listened to.
There were systems for dealing with complaints, accidents and incidents. The registered manager and senior staff were responsive to and worked in partnership with other agencies to meet people’s needs.
The provider was transparent and there was clear communication within the team, so they learnt from mistakes and made improvements when things went wrong.
People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice.
