About the service

Caring Folk Limited is a domiciliary care service providing personal care and domestic support to 35 people aged 65 and over at the time of the inspection.

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 we spoke with said they felt the service was safe and risks to their loved ones well managed. Risks to people from infection were managed appropriately by staff, who had good access to and training in using personal protective equipment.

There were enough staff recruited safely to meet people’s needs.

People received their medicines as prescribed and staff competency to administer medicines was checked by trained staff.

The registered manager used quality assurance processes to monitor and improve the service, and used third party consultants to identify shortfalls and create action plans to identify and measure improvements.

People and staff said there was a positive working culture at the service, and the provider gathered feedback in order to help the service improve.
