Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 23 May 2018

This inspection took place on 30 April and 1 May 2018. It was announced and was carried out by one inspector. We gave the service 48 hours' notice because they provide a domiciliary care service and we needed to make sure someone would be in the office.

Home Instead Senior Care: Maidenhead, Henley & Wallingford is a domiciliary care agency. It provides personal care to people living in their own homes in the community. It provides a service to older and younger people, some of whom may be living with physical disabilities and/or dementia. At the time of our inspection there were 41 people receiving a service.

At our last inspection we rated the service good. Following that inspection the provider moved their office location and the service now has a new manager. The new manager is currently in the process of registering with the Care Quality Commission. At this inspection we found the evidence continued to support the rating of good and there was no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrated serious risks or concerns. This inspection report is written in a shorter format because our overall rating of the service has not changed since our last inspection.

At this inspection we found the service remained Good.
