Inspection Summary

Overall summary & rating


Updated 7 December 2019

Tigheaven Ltd is a domiciliary care agency. It provides personal care and support to people living in their own homes. At the time of the inspection nine people were using the service.

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

People had care assessments that identified their needs. Risks associated with people’s health and well-being needs were identified and managed well to mitigate risks found. The provider’s safeguarding policy and training guided staff on how to identify abuse and to report any allegations of abuse appropriately.

People had staff support with the administration of their medicines in a safe way. Medicine administration records were reviewed to ensure these were completed accurately.

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 identified their own social activities and participated in these as they chose. People had meals that met their preferences, choices and cultural needs when this was arranged as part of their package of care.

People and their relatives told us they were satisfied with the care and support received and with the management of the service. People understood how to make a complaint about the service if they were unhappy with aspects of their care.
