Mears Care, who provide home care and support services to over 180 people living in Southport, have just been awarded full marks by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) the body that inspects and regulates care services in England.
In an unannounced, routine inspection the CQC assessed the local team of 68 care workers providing home care to people of all ages and abilities. The CQC judged the team on five areas; care and welfare, respecting and involving people who use services, supporting workers, safeguarding and assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision. The CQC awarded Mears with full marks in each of these categories.
The CQC commented that Mears 'demonstrated they made efforts to ensure that care was person centred, and planned to suit customer's preferences'
Julie Graves, Manager of Mears Southport said; 'We are delighted that CQC has recognised our dedication, it is important to us that we deliver care that is tailored to the individual.'
