For many people, live-in care is an ideal solution when they reach the stage of being unable to look after themselves without help. Although some individuals are happy to move into residential care, many prefer to remain in the comfort of their homes. For those clients, live-in care provides the support and companionship needed without the upheaval of moving out of their property and away from neighbours and friends.
If you are considering live-in care for yourself or a loved one, you will want to ensure that the care provided will be suitable and meet appropriate standards. So it is reassuring to know that Lifted Care services are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC regulations applying to the provision of live-in care ensure that our services are delivered to the required standard. In fact, we exceed the requirements in many ways.
The CQC is an independent body responsible for regulating, monitoring and inspecting health and social care in England, including various settings, from care homes to hospitals and GP practices. The CQC conducts frequent inspections to review the quality of services provided to ensure your loved ones are getting the appropriate care. The inspected organisations are awarded ratings, and the results of the assessments are published on the CQC website. The ratings must also be displayed where they are easy to find on the care provider’s website. At Lifted Care, we are proud to have been awarded a Good rating by the CQC at our most recent inspection. That signifies that the Lifted Care team are meeting the CQC’s expectations in terms of care quality.
