How can I improve my care service?

Andrea Sutcliffe, the Chief Inspector for social care at the CQC has given her 5 top tips for social care services to improve:

1. Hard Work- Make sure your employees put the required time, effort and commitment into creating a culture of success in your care home.
2. Use what works- Use all of the resources at your disposal, your issues will not be singular to you. Many care homes will have had the same issues and overcome them.
3. Be inspired by others- There are some great care homes out there, so it is important to learn from what they are doing well. Here is an example of a leading care home.
4. Listen to the people using your service- The majority of reports show that the best homes listen to the people using their service, whether this be the residents themselves or the families.
5. Believe you can- Make sure you and staff understand that you have the ability and know how to have a care home to be proud of.

In response to the CQC changes, Citation has developed a CQC specific tool to help address the issues care services face. Take a look at CQC Pro.
