About the service

Yucca Recruitment Agency Limited is a domiciliary care agency providing care and support to people living in their own homes and flats.

The Care Quality Commission (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. At the time of the inspection two people using the service were receiving personal care.

People’s experience of using this service and what we found

A safe service was provided for people to use and staff to work in. There were enough staff to meet people’s needs who were appropriately recruited. This enabled people to enjoy their lives and live safely. The provider assessed and recorded risks to people and staff; and monitored and updated them as required. Accidents, incidents and safeguarding concerns were reported, investigated and recorded appropriately. Medicines were safely administered, and people prompted to take their medicines.

Relatives told us that effective care was provided, they were not subject to discrimination and their equality and diversity needs were met. Staff were well-trained and supervised. Relatives said staff provided good care very well. Staff encouraged people to discuss their health needs, any changes to them and they were passed on to appropriate community-based health care professionals. This included any required transitioning of services if people’s needs changed. People were protected by staff from nutrition and hydration risks, and people were encouraged to choose healthy and balanced diets that also met their likes, dislikes and preferences.

Relatives said staff provided care and support in a friendly way. They paid attention to small details making all the difference. Staff respected and acknowledged people’s privacy, dignity and confidentiality. People were encouraged and supported to be independent and do things for themselves. This improved their quality of life by promoting their self-worth. Staff were caring, compassionate and passionate about the people they provided a service for.

The provider was responsive with people’s needs assessed, reviewed and care plans in place including people’s communication needs. Person-centred care was provided. People were given choices, encouraged to follow their routines, interests and maintain contact with friends and relatives so that social isolation was minimised. People were given suitable information about the service to make their own decisions regarding if they wanted to use it. Complaints were recorded and investigated.

The provider’s culture was open, positive, and honest with a leadership and management that was transparent. The statement of purpose clearly defined the provider’s vision and values and staff understood and followed them and were aware of their responsibilities and accountability. Staff were prepared to take responsibility and raise any concerns they may have with the provider. Service quality was regularly reviewed and changes made to improve the care and support people received accordingly. This was in a way that suited people best. The provider established effective working partnerships that promoted the needs of people being met outside its remit to reduce social isolation. Registration requirements were met.
