A Doncaster care home have just been awarded full marks by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an unannounced inspection.

Mears Care, in South Parade which provides home care and support services to over 160 people received five out of five.

The CQC gave the team full marks in the following five areas; care and welfare of people who use services, consent to care and treatment, complaints, assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision and cooperating with other providers.

The CQC spoke with people who used the service and relatives with people saying they thought staff were polite and had a good understanding of their support needs.

One person stated; “I know one day I may have to go into a care home but with the help of Mears’ carers I am able to manage at home.”

Helen Cooke, Manager of Mears Doncaster said; ‘‘I am delighted with the recent CQC Inspection Report, it is a reflection of the hard work and commitment shown by the team who help many local people remain independent”.
