About the service

Rainbow Outreach and Healthcare Solutions Limited is a domiciliary care service providing personal care to people across Bedale, Leeming and Northallerton. The service was supporting four people at the time of our inspection, including older people and people living with mental health needs and physical disability.

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

The provider was committed to providing person-centred care and ensuring staff shared their aim of providing high quality care. People and staff had regular access to the registered manager to share their feedback. The provider’s quality assurance systems had not fully been developed in-line with their policy. They did not always identify the gaps in records we found, including medicines records.

People felt safe with the staff supporting them. Staff knew how to manage risks to people to keep them safe. Appropriate checks were completed to ensure suitable, safe staff and agency staff worked for the provider. We made a recommendation about medicine best practice guidance.

People received effective support and were involved in developing their care plans. Staff had the knowledge and skills required 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 and in their best interests; the policies and systems in the service supported this practice. We made a recommendation about mental capacity assessments and best interest records.

People praised the kind, considerate care they received. Family members recognised the positive impact care had on family life. Staff encouraged people to make decisions about their care. People and staff shared caring relationships based on respect and valuing people as individuals.

Care was provided in responsive ways, focused on achieving people’s chosen goals. Staff worked with people and their families to maintain their relationships and facilitate access to community services. Staff knew people’s wishes and preferences, they used this to provide responsive person-centred care.
