About the service

Eaton Home Care Limited provides personal care to adults living in their own homes in Cambridge and surrounding villages. 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 this inspection, eight people received the regulated activity, personal care. The service had been operating since June 2019.

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

People felt safe receiving the service and were protected from avoidable harm by a staff team trained and confident to recognise and report any concerns. People received their medicines at the right times.

Staff had the time to ensure they met people’s needs safely, and in a way that suited them. People received care from a small team of staff who were trained and very well supported. Staff worked well together and liaised with external care professionals to ensure people received the care and support they needed.

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 this practice. People were involved in making decisions about their care and support. Staff supported people to express their views and consulted them about all aspects of their care. The registered manager and staff were caring and provided people’s care in a person-centred way. Staff were friendly, and treated people with respect.

People’s care plans were detailed and provided staff with comprehensive guidance on how to meet people's needs.

Systems were in place to deal with any concerns or complaints. The registered manager thoroughly investigated any complaints, responded to the complainant and took action to reduce the risk of recurrence.

Audits and quality monitoring checks helped drive forward improvements in the service. We received positive feedback about the way the service was managed. Everyone said the registered manager and staff were approachable and accessible. Staff were proud to work for the service and worked in partnership with external professionals.
