About the service

Morning Hope Homecare provides personal care to adults living in their own homes who may live with dementia or a physical disability. There were two people receiving personal care at the time of our inspection.

Not everyone who uses the service may 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.

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

People said they had a positive experience in respect of the care and support they received. They told us they received support from staff in a timely way and were not kept waiting for assistance.

People were comfortable in the presence of staff and told us they felt safe. Staff were knowledgeable about potential risks to people and were able to tell us how these would be minimised without compromising people’s rights.

People were supported by staff who were caring and compassionate. Staff showed respect for people’s rights, privacy, dignity and independence. Staff providing care to people were limited to a small number to aid consistency of care and ensure positive relationships were maintained with people.

People received effective person-centred care and support which was based on their individual needs and preferences. Staff were knowledgeable about people’s needs and preferences and people and social care professionals told us they well treated and received a good standard of care. People’s care records reflected people’s involvement and how person-centred care was planned.

People were supported by care staff who had a range of skills and knowledge to meet their needs. Staff understood their role, felt confident and well supported. Staff received supervision they felt was constructive from the provider. People's health was supported as staff worked with other health care providers as needed to ensure their health needs were met.

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 told us staff responded to their needs effectively and their preferences were known and respected by staff.

People knew how to complain, and any concerns raised were followed up to ensure a suitable outcome was reached for the person using the service. People were confident they could communicate how they felt to staff, who were approachable and listened to what they had to say.

People and staff gave a positive picture as to the quality of care people received and said management was proactive.

Quality monitoring systems were in place, and the provider completed various audits to assist them in monitoring and helping them to identify how to improve people’s experiences.
