121 Care and Mobility is domiciliary care provider that was providing personal care to people in their own homes. People receiving support had a range of needs including, the elderly, people that were living with dementia. At the time of our inspection there were 280 people receiving personal care.

People’s experience of using this service:

• People's care plans reflected their needs and preferences and staff could explain specific care that people required.

• People received care from staff who were well supported with induction, training and ongoing supervision.
