About the service

Care Promise Limited is a domiciliary care agency providing personal care to adults with a range of support needs in their own homes. At the time of the inspection they were supporting 51 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 were supported to eat and drink and to maintain a balanced diet. Staff continued to work with health and social professionals and people had access to healthcare services.

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 were supported and treated well by staff. People were involved in their care and included in any decisions made. Staff respected and promoted people’s privacy, dignity and independence, and people confirmed how caring and compassionate staff were.

People’s communication needs were assessed and identified, and the provider was aware of the Accessible Information Standard (AIS). People were supported to develop and maintain relationships, and staff spent time speaking with people on topics which were of an interest to them. People and relatives knew how to complain even though they had no concerns.
