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

Call visits were not monitored to ensure people received their calls on time and there were no missed calls. However, people confirmed they received their visits on time. Risk assessments were generic and lacked guidance for staff and care plans needed to be more person centred.

People received safe and effective support from staff who received appropriate training and understood peoples identified risks. The provider had a robust recruitment process.

People were supported to take their medicines safely and staff understood the importance of infection control practices. People were supported to eat and drink where appropriate to maintain a healthy diet.

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. People told us they were happy with the care and support they received in areas such areas as their health needs, medicines management and end of life care.

Staff received an induction and regular training. They received competency checks, regular staff meetings and supervisions.

People told us staff were kind, caring and compassionate. People’s care was arranged in response to their identified needs. This was kept under review and updated as and when needed. Staff supported people in a way that maintained their dignity and promoted their independence.
