Home Instead (High Peak) have had an excellent inspection in compliance with all CQC (Care quality commission) essential standards. This is under the new method of assessing a care company’s performance and includes writing to clients and families for feedback on the quality of care support received.
Paul Vickers, managing director commented “We’re delighted to know that the care we are proving to our clients is meeting and exceeding expectations, providing quality care and support is our priority and after two years we have established a fantastic care team under the leadership of our Care Manager Christine Blain”.
Below are some of the responses by our clients to the Care Quality Commission:
‘Very thorough (in providing information), very reassured by what they (the service) were offering’.
‘Given information during the first visit which was good;’
‘I made decisions about care and treatment – so nice to be asked what we wanted rather than be told what we could have.’
‘I have an information pack which details what was asked for, a copy is in the folder.’
‘Give 110% and go that extra mile;’ caregivers are very efficient, so caring, staff fantastic;’ ‘brilliant, marvellous, fantastic and wonderful;’ ‘feel service is being run in proper manner;’ ‘very thorough, very reassured as to what they were offering;’ ‘level of support and care excellent; allow independence, supported to do things’.
‘Very flexible and that it is possible to ask for and receive a caregiver at short notice;’ ‘visit once a day but when problems come up will visit more often, very flexible;’ ‘amount of care package varies throughout the week but on average twice a day, flexible service.’
