Carefound Home Care Featured in Skills for Care Outstanding Care Film

Friday, 14th February 2020

Specialist home care provider, Carefound Home Care, is the focus of a film produced by Skills for Care to demonstrate outstanding care at home.

Despite the fact that four out of five adult social care services are now rated as good by the national regulator – the Care Quality Commission – only 4% of care providers have been awarded an ‘outstanding’ rating.

Skills for Care work in partnership with the Department of Health and Social Care and are looking to share best practice from across the sector to help services improve standards of care.

Carefound Home Care is rated outstanding by the CQC in Yorkshire and their Cheshire branch has recently been rated outstanding for all five areas of inspection – safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

Jenna Wood, Marketing Officer for Skills for Care, said:

“It was great to work with Carefound Home Care to share some of the things that makes them outstanding. We know that there’s lots of fantastic work going on in the sector, and we need to do more to share it so that others can learn and improve.”

“We loved talking to Katie, Aimee and Hayley and it was evident from the start how committed everyone is to ensuring that the service is the best that it can be. This really shone through when we met Hilda, who’s supported by Carefound Home Care carers – she praised the staff for their genuine commitment to person-centred care, and talked about how having a regular team of caring people had really made a difference to her life.”
