INDEPENDENCE NOT DEPENDENCE

About Us: Our live in carers promote independence with around the clock care

 

‘Independent People Home Care’ was established to enable people with care needs to be able to choose to continue to live in their own homes with the support of dedicated professional carers, employed by a company that has been built on the foundation of staff with extensive clinical care experience.

As a provider of Live in Care services we have seen the demand for our high level of Live in Care services that we provide grow year on year. Every Live in Care package we provide is tailored to meet the individual care needs of people we support. We believe that care is about supporting and caring for people in a way that helps them to still be in control of their life and to be able to make their own informed choices.

To do this we aim to build strong relationships with the people we support and their families, by winning their trust and encouraging the people we support. We are focused on improving the independence of the people that choose our services so that they are able to get the most out of their life.

Over the years we have provided Live in Care services to a wide range of people. We have been commissioned by individuals and families to care for their loved ones, this can be through a combination of funding streams, from privately funded to fully funded by Social Services and the NHS for both Continuing Heath Care and End of life care.

As a provider of care services, we are routinely checked through unannounced visits from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure that our Service Users and their families are receiving the support from us that they need and deserve.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is tasked with making these checks. The CQC talks to our staff, the people we support and their families to get their views and feedback on the care that has been provided.

We are thrilled with our latest CQC report, the latest in a line of only good findings and it was lovely for us to see so many green ticks.

Reading the quotes from our patients and their family and friends as told to the investigator on the day was even nicer. Please read through the attached report and judge us for yourself.

The overall judgement was that we were meeting all the essential standards of quality and safety and it is lovely to see so many green ticks against the areas investigated.

It is with this ethos in mind that we have seven key aims and objectives:

To provide care services based upon individually assessed needs by appropriately trained staff, which are committed to valuing and supporting individuals and take pride in their work.

To provide high quality responsive care services to enable the individual to retain independence and choice, with support and reassurance in order to remain at home for as long as they wish.

To ensure the individual and/or their representative are regularly consulted about the care service we provide, and preserve the individuals’ self-respect and dignity through high quality care.

To cater for the individuals cultural, religious and ethnic needs.

To maximise the individuals potential by working with all health professionals and social services to plan and deliver the care services.

To ensure that the needs of the individual is paramount with regard to any decisions or activities affecting their care.
