About the service

Clarity Homecare Bury is a domiciliary care service that provides care and support to adults in their own homes. At the time of the inspection the service provided support to 25 people. 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.
