About the service:

Sun Rose Care Limited is a domiciliary care agency. The agency provides care, support and personal care to people living in their own homes. At the time of the inspection, care was being provided to six older people, some of whom were living with dementia.

Not everyone using Sun rose Care Limited received a 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 take account of any wider social care provided.

For more details, please see the full report which is on the CQC website at www.cqc.org.uk

People’s experience of using this service:

People told us they felt safe when staff were in their homes. Risks to people were identified, assessed and reviewed with people, their relatives and health and social care professionals

People received support from the same staff which meant care was provided consistently and people knew who would be supporting them each day. There were enough staff to meet people’s needs and no care calls had been missed. A person told us, “I have regular people, we’ve got to know each other well.”

Staff were recruited safely. Staff had a good understanding of safeguarding procedures and the process to follow and who to contact, if they had concerns. They were confident about reporting issues and were aware of the whistleblowing policy.

People were supported to make decisions and remain as independent as possible. People, relatives and professionals told us that staff had a good understanding of people’s needs. Staff were supervised which included regular supervision meetings and spot checks. This was done to ensure they continued to provide good care and support for people. Staff knew people well and spoke about them with knowledge and understanding.

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 the practice.

People had access to health and social care professionals and were supported to make and attend appointments. Some people were supported to make food and drink and to take medicines.

Everyone we spoke to said that staff were caring and respectful. A relative told us, “They are definitely caring, (cared for), really enjoys their company.”

Staff know how to communicate with people and how to support them to make choices and decisions. A complaints policy was in place and easily accessible. People and relatives told us that they knew how to make a complaint and that they felt confident that any matters raised would be dealt with.

People, relatives and professionals told us they thought the service was well run. A professional told us, “The structure is good, there is consistency the whole way through.” The service had been providing personal care to people for a year and the acting registered manager was keen to expand. However, she made it clear that would happen only when everything was in place and increasing numbers could be achieved safely and without compromising quality care.

Rating at last inspection: Sun Rose Care limited has not been inspected by CQC before.
