Carer visits are monitored
electronically to time visits and avoid missed visits. The carer uses a logging in and out system either on the client’s telephone (using a freephone number) or the carer’s own mobile. If no
log-in is recorded, an alert is automatically sent 15 minutes after the scheduled start time. Management will check whether the carer has arrived, and if not, will ensure a replacement carer
will respond to ensure no missed visits.
Management will officially visit four times a year to
review client’s needs and complete an annual quality assurance report. Spot checks will also be undertaken on our carers while they are working.

how seemingly unimportant, must be taken seriously.
- Front-line care staff who receive a verbal complaint are
expected to seek to solve the problem immediately.
- If they cannot solve the problem immediately, they should

an advocate, it must first be verified that the person has permission to speak for the client, especially if confidential information is involved. (It is very easy to assume that the advocate has the
right or power to act for the client when they may not). If in doubt it should be assumed that the client’s explicit permission is needed prior to discussing the complaint with the

staff dealing with the complaint will suggest a means of resolving it. If this course of action is acceptable then the member of staff should clarify the agreement with the complainant and agree a
way in which the results of the complaint will be communicated to the complainant (i.e. through another meeting or by letter).
- If the suggested plan of action is not acceptable to the
complainant, then the member of staff or manager will ask the complainant to put their complaint in writing to the Registered Manager. The complainant should be given a copy of the company’s
complaints procedure if they do not already have one.
- Details of all verbal and written complaints must be
recorded in the complaints book, the service user’s file and in the home records.
- The Registered Manager is responsible for following
through complaints. However, there may be a specific post with responsibility for complaints. Communication between this post and the Registered Manager and Care Manager should be clear and
transparent in order that the Registered Manager, May Downes or Care Manager can demonstrate and evidence compliance.
