About the service

Nurseplus UK - 3 Hyde Gardens is a domiciliary care agency which provides support with personal care to people living in their own homes. The provider is a large organisation who has a number of branches throughout the country. Not 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. At the time of the inspection 39 people were receiving support with personal care.

People’s experience of using this service and what we found

People were supported by staff who were kind, caring and patient. They understood people’s care and support needs and what was important to each person. They were enabled to make their own decisions and choices about the care they received each day.

People received support from a regular group of staff who knew them and understood their support needs. The deputy manager was continually working to ensure people’s group of care staff remained as small as practicably possible. Staff arrived at their calls when they should and stayed for the correct amount of time.

People were protected from the risks of harm, abuse or discrimination because staff knew what actions to take if they identified concerns. There were enough staff working to provide the support people needed. Recruitment procedures ensured only suitable staff worked at the service.

Risk assessments provided guidance for staff about individual and environmental risks. Staff understood the risks associated with the people they supported. People were supported to receive their medicines safely, when they needed them.

Staff received training that enabled them to provide the care and support that people needed. Staff received regular supervision and support from the deputy manager. They felt supported by their colleagues. People's health needs were met, they were supported to have access to healthcare services when they needed them. People told us staff were attentive to their health needs and would seek guidance when necessary.

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 supported this practice.

There was a manager working at the service who had good oversight. They were able to tell us about people and their needs. They were working to continually develop and improve the service. There was an audit system which helped the provider identify areas which needed to be improved.
