Award Winning live-in care agency where the personal touch is at the heart of all we do.
Corinium Care Limited specialises in the provision of high quality live-in care to elderly and vulnerable people who wish to maintain their independence and remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Set up in 1995 and based in Gloucestershire, we operate all over the UK, and primarily in the southern part of the country, from Wales through to Sussex, Kent and London.
As a market leader in the industry, Corinium Care is experienced in catering for a wide range of conditions including but not limited to dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, respite care, stroke recovery and palliative care. All of our care packages are individually tailored and managed by our expert Care Managers who are on hand for support and guidance when it is needed.
We seek to provide clients with a care worker who will:
- Give support and gentle companionship
- Respect a client’s dignity, privacy and choice
- Assist with all personal care tasks
- Encourage and help their client to do as much for themselves as possible for as long as they wish
- Undertake light housework, cooking and shopping duties if that is what the client wishes
All of our carers go through a careful selection process and take part in our award-winning training scheme, where they learn everything from first aid, personal care, and moving and handling, to how to deal with dementia. We invest annually in carer update training to ensure that our clients receive the most dedicated, experienced and professional carers to look after their needs.
If you feel that live-in care may be the right option for you, please get in touch and we will be happy to discuss your individual requirements.

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 was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.
This inspection was carried out by one adult social care inspector, who visited on 30 June and 3 July 2015.
We used a variety of methods to obtain feedback from those with knowledge and experience of the service.
Prior to the inspection we looked at the information we had about the service. This information included the statutory notifications that the provider had sent to CQC. A notification is information about important events which the service is required to send us by law. We did not ask the provider to complete their Provider Information Record (PIR) in this instance. This is a form that asks the provider to give some key information about the service, tells us what the service does well and the improvements they planned to make.
At the beginning of our inspection we agreed with the registered manager who they would contact to ask if they were willing to speak to us. This included people who lived close to the agencies office for us to visit and people who lived in other parts of the country for us to contact by telephone or email.
During the inspection we visited two people in their own homes. We spoke to these people about the service they received and were also able to speak with care staff. We talked with a further three people using the service by telephone. We talked with five relatives by telephone and received written feedback from a further 15 relatives. We talked with three care staff, the senior care manager, a care manager, the training manager, the recruitment and IT manager, the bookings manager and the registered manager.
We looked at the care records of twelve people, the recruitment and personnel records of seven staff, training records for all staff and other records relating to the management of the service. We looked at a range of policies and procedures including, safeguarding, whistleblowing, complaints, mental capacity, recruitment, confidentiality, accidents and incidents and equality and diversity.
