About the service

Village Care Limited - 3c Wesley Place is a domiciliary care service providing personal care to people in their own homes. At the time of the inspection the service was providing personal care to 50 older people.

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

People told us they received a good service and felt safe with the support they received from staff. Accidents and incidents were recorded and investigated, and risk assessments were in place. The registered manager and staff understood their responsibilities about safeguarding. Arrangements were in place to protect people from the risks associated with the management of medicines and the spread of infection.

Effective recruitment procedures were in place and there were enough staff on duty to meet people’s needs. Staff received appropriate training and supervision to maintain and develop their skills and knowledge to care for people in a person-centred way.

People’s care and support was based on detailed assessments and care plans which were regularly reviewed and updated. People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible. The policies and systems in the service supported this practice.

Staff had developed caring relationships with people they supported. People were supported to take part in decisions about their care and treatment and their views were listened to. Staff respected people’s independence, privacy and dignity.

Effective management systems were in place to monitor the quality of the care provided and to promote people’s safety and welfare. People were kept aware of the provider’s complaints procedure.
