About the service

Divine Intervention Home care limited is a domiciliary care agency providing personal care to 11 people at the time of the inspection. 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’s experience of using this service and what we found

The provider carried out audits of the service, however some improvements were required in order to make them more robust. Risk assessments did not always give clear guidance for staff to follow and some clearer recording of medicines was required. The provider was responsive to our feedback and following the inspection improved their systems.

People told us they felt safe and received their medicines as prescribed. Staff had received training in safeguarding and knew how to keep people safe. People received consistent care from a small group of staff in a timely manner. Staff followed infection control guidance and had access to personal protective equipment.

Staff were well trained and supported to provide the best possible care to people. Where people needed support to eat and drink, staff supported them to make choices and respected their views. Staff liaised with other health care professionals to ensure people’s safety and to meet their health needs.

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 did not always support this practice and recording of best interest decisions needed to be completed.

Everyone we spoke with were positive about the caring nature of the staff and said they would recommend the service to others. People told us they were treated with dignity and staff made them feel at ease and confident to receive care. Staff supported people’s independence where possible.

People were included in care plan reviews and staff supported people to make choices about their care. The provider had a complaints process and people felt confident to raise any concerns. Records held personalised information about people and staff knew people's preferences with regards to their care.

People and relatives spoke highly of the registered manager and staff team. People received opportunities to share their views about the service they received. Staff felt the management team were supportive and approachable.
