CQC's State of Care recognises Outstanding 1%

As reported on ITV News last night, 13th October, The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has released its annual State of Care report warning adult social care is ‘approaching tipping point’. However, Home Instead was featured as an example of what an Outstanding care provider looks like,

The 2015/2016 report noted that most health and social care services in England are providing people with safe, high quality and compassionate care – but with pressures on rising demand, access and cost, the latest report raises concerns about how long this can last.

The CQC’s annual assessment of the quality of health and social care in England highlighted that 71% of adult social care services inspected by the CQC were rated ‘good’ with 1%‘outstanding’.

As a national homecare provider committed to dignified, quality care standards, Home Instead is firmly positioned in the report’s outstanding 1% category.

We are proudly united by the Home Instead ethos – to deliver care that passes the Mum Test, the standard you would want to see for your own love one, with visits that typically last a minimum of one hour.

There’s always time to care with our model – and it is given by the same familiar faces that older people know and trust. We believe that’s what makes the great quality of care that our ageing population deserves.

At Home Instead Sheffield, we echo comments made on this year’s report by Peter Wyman, Chair of the CQC, who said: “All of us all want the same thing – good, safe care that’s sustainable into the future.''
