About the service:

Mayrose Care Services is a domiciliary care service that was providing personal care to one person living in their own home at the time of this inspection. CQC inspects the service being received by people provided with ‘personal care’; help with tasks related to personal hygiene and eating. Where they do we also consider any wider social care or support provided.

People’s experience of using this service:

People were safe and protected from avoidable harm because staff knew how to identify and report any concerns relating to the risk of abuse. Risks to people's health, safety and well-being were assessed and measures put in place to remove or reduce the risks. People were supported by enough staff who had been safely recruited through a robust process. People’s medicines were managed safely. Staff had received training in infection control practices and personal protective equipment such as gloves and aprons was provided for them. The management team took appropriate actions following any incidents and learning was shared with staff.

The provider undertook assessments to make sure people's needs could be met by Mayrose Care Services. Care plans were developed from these assessments for people’s identified needs and staff had clear guidance on how to meet those needs. Staff received training and support to help them to carry out their roles effectively. People told us they were confident in the care staff’s ability to provide effective care.

People were supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice. People received consistent care from a small team of staff. People held a copy of their care plans and could decide what care and support they needed. People’s records were held securely in a locked cabinet within a locked office to help promote confidentiality.

People received care and support as they wished. People told us they would be confident to raise any concerns with the management team and said they were satisfied with the care and support they received.

The management team was committed to providing a high standard of care to the people they supported as well as the staff team and understood their responsibilities under the Duty of Candour. People told us that the registered manager was always available and supportive.
