About the service

Fean Services UK Ltd is a domiciliary care agency providing support with personal care to three people at the time of the inspection.

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

Systems were in place to safeguard people from the risk of abuse. There were enough staff to support people and checks had been carried out on prospective staff to ensure they were suitable to work in a care setting. Risk assessments had been carried out so that people were supported safely. Medicines were well managed, and procedures were established to reduce the risk of the spread of infection.

Assessments were carried out of people’s needs to check the service was able to meet those needs. Staff received support through training and supervision to help them in their role. Where people were supported with meal preparation they were able to choose what they ate and drank. The service worked with other agencies to promote people’s health, safety and wellbeing. 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. People were able to consent to the care provided.

Staff understood how to support people in a way that promoted their dignity, independence and choice. People told us staff were caring in the way they interacted with them. People’s confidentiality and privacy were respected.

Care plans were in place which were personalised around the needs of individuals. Care plans included information about how to support people with their communication needs. Systems were established for dealing with complaints and people knew how to make a complaint.

People and staff spoke positively about the senior staff and told us they were accessible and helpful. Systems were in place for monitoring and improving the quality of support provided. Some of these included seeking the views of people who used the service.
