Carers Trust Norfolk – Provide Care you can Trust
We provide support for people with care needs which includes adults and children.
We believe in working with the family and the person with care needs to enable them to live the lives they choose.
We offer an individualised high quality care service, whilst also linking the families into information, advice and guidance to support with their own health and wellbeing.
We employ a highly skilled staff team, with a focus on ‘Dementia Care’. All of our staff are encouraged to develop and progress within their roles, with a varied offering of updated training to benefit the families we support. We are proud to celebrate our high success rate of staff retention.
The minimum care slot we provide is 1 hour. We believe that our clients should be supported with dignity and respect and shorter care slots do not allow time to build a rapport, relationship or understanding of the individual’s needs, which is especially important for people living with Dementia.
94% of our staff are proud to work for us and 98% of our clients would recommend us to family and friends.
OverallRead overall summary
We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection checked whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.
This announced inspection took place on 12 April 2017. The provider was given 48 hoursâ notice because the location provides a domiciliary care service and we needed to be sure that someone would be available to respond to our queries.
The inspection team consisted of one inspector and two experts by experience, who carried out phone calls to people and relatives using the service. An Expert by Experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.
Before we carried out the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the service. This included statutory notifications that the provider had sent us. A statutory notification contains information about significant events that affect peopleâs safety, which the provider is required to send to us by law. We reviewed the Provider Information Return (PIR). This is a report that asks the provider to give us some key information about the service, what the service does well and improvements they plan to make. We also spoke with the local authority for their views on the service.
During our inspection we spoke with six people using the service and nine relatives via the telephone. We also spoke with eight members of care staff, the registered manager, the manager for the service, a team leader and the regional operations manager. Five of the care staff we spoke with over the telephone and the remainder of staff we spoke with when we visited the serviceâs office. We visited the office on one day. At the office we looked at six peopleâs care records, the medicines records for five people, four staff recruitment files and staff training records. We looked at quality monitoring documents, accident and incident records, complaints, and other records relating to the management of the service.
