About the service

Time 2 Care is a domiciliary care agency. At the time of inspection there were approximately 48 people using the service.

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.
