Why should you choose a CQC regulated care provider?

The short answer is that they provide a full-managed service. By choosing a CQC-regulated carer you can rely on the following:

  • Before the care starts, your loved one’s needs and wishes will be fully discussed and their support package meticulously planned at a face-to-face meeting between your loved one and a member of the provider’s management team, which we would also encourage another family member to attend.
  • All this information will then be incorporated into a formal care plan, which will provide the carer with detailed information about your loved one’s background and interests, their preferred daily routine, their likes and dislikes and any health or mobility issues they may have, including medication.
  • The progress of the care will be regularly monitored by the management team, especially in the first couple of weeks, through a combination of phone calls and home visits, to ensure that it is meeting your loved one’s needs and the family’s expectations
  • As for the carer (selected with your agreement) to look after your loved one, prior to their recruitment they will have been thoroughly vetted and put through a rigorous interview and selection process. They will have been properly trained in all the key aspects of care, including practical training in areas such as first aid, safe moving and handling and resuscitation.
