Inspection Summary


Overall summary & rating

Good

Updated 3 November 2018

Selborne Care Limited is a domiciliary care agency. It provides personal care to people living in their own houses and flats in the community. At the time of our inspection the provider was providing personal care for six people all of whom lived in Worcester.

Not everyone using Selborne Care Limited receives regulated activity; CQC only 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 provided.

At the last inspection on 2 February 2016, the service was rated 'Good.' At this inspection we found evidence continued to support the overall rating of 'Good.' There is no evidence or information from our inspection and ongoing monitoring that demonstrates serious risk 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.
