Care and Support Service - Westbury Fields Good

Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 15 February 2020

About the service:

Westbury Fields is a domiciliary care agency. This service provides care and support to people living in their own homes within Westbury Fields. Their accommodation is bought or rented and is the occupant's own home. People's care and housing are provided under separate contractual agreements.

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. At the time of the inspection they were providing personal care to 50 people in their own homes.

People’s experience of using this service:

People told us they felt safe and that staff were kind, supported them in a dignified and respectful manner and maintained their privacy and independence. People received support from staff who they knew well.

People were supported by staff who promoted their independence. People received support from a consistent team of staff who were skilled and competent in providing care and support. Staff and the registered manager showed a genuine interest and passion to deliver personalised care based on people's likes, wishes and preferences.

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.

Staff knew people well however some care plans contained basic information relating to people's individual support and care needs. This meant staff did not have sufficient guidance on how to support people with specific health needs such as using their oxygen.

Communication with health and social care professionals was effective in ensuring people received joined up care. The provider had aims and standards for the service and told people what they should expect from staff and the service in respect of the quality of care they received.

The provider worked in partnership with other agencies this supported people in ensuring any changes were raised with professionals and those funding the persons care needs.
