About the service

Haziel Home Care is a small domiciliary care agency, which currently provides care and support to three people provided by two care workers. 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.

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

Relatives said they had a positive experience in respect of the care and support their relative received. They told us care workers provided support in a timely way, by care workers familiar to them and their needs.

Relatives told us that people were comfortable in the presence of care workers and told us they were safe. Care workers 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 care workers who were caring and compassionate. Care workers demonstrated respect for people's rights, privacy, dignity and independence. People who used the service benefited from having the same care workers, which ensured consistency and ensured that they were familiar with their care workers.

The service ensured that people received effective person-centred care and support which was based on their individual needs and preferences. Care workers were knowledgeable about people's needs and preferences and people and relatives told us they treated people well and that the agency provided a good standard of care. People's care records reflected their involvement and how their care was planned.

People were supported by care workers who had a range of skills and knowledge to meet their needs. Care workers were clear and understood their role, they felt confident and well supported. Care workers told us that they felt supported and they had received supervision which they told us was beneficial and constructive.

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.

Relatives knew how to complain, they told us that they currently had no concerns regarding the care provided to their loved ones by the agency.

Everyone spoken with gave a positive picture as to the quality of care provided by the agency and said that the manager and registered provider was listening and was willing to make changes.

Quality monitoring systems were in place, the manager monitored and assessed care records regularly and asked people who used the service and their relatives to give feedback about the quality of care provided.
