We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.
We carried out a comprehensive inspection on 2nd October 2018 which was announced. We gave the service 24 hours’ notice of the inspection visit because the location provides a domiciliary care service so we needed to be sure that they would be in.
Sans Soucie Home Care Limited is domiciliary care agency supporting people with a range of needs including learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorder and people living with dementia. Not everyone using Sans Soucie Home Care Limited receives regulated activity; CQC only inspects the service being received by people provided with ‘personal care’; help with tasks related to personal hygiene and eating.
Where they do we also take into account any wider social care provided. At the point of our inspection there were eight people supported by the service who were receiving a regulated activity.
