Council support to keep people independent in their own homes has recently received a glowing report from inspectors from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Home First Community provides support for short periods of time to maximise people’s potential to be independent within their own homes. The team were inspected in April this year and was judged to be good in all areas.

Inspectors highlighted the positive feedback from the residents, relatives and professionals about the exceptional service being delivered and the responsive and caring nature of all staff.

Inspectors also praised the robust systems that are in place to continually review and monitor people’s progress.

Cllr Richard Hannigan, cabinet member for Adults and Health said: “Home First Community are an incredibly important support network to enable people to remain independent within their own home.

“They deliver an exceptional care model to meet the needs of local people.

“The glowing report recognises the amazing dedication and hard work from all staff who clearly strive to deliver the best care possible and are proud of what they do.

“This inspection from the CQC provides us with the highest level of assurance that the service is continuing to provide high-quality support that is enabling residents to be as independent as possible.”
