Your care needs will fit into these three categories:
If you require minor or moderate care, we may be able to assign to you a regular carer. If you need substantial care and need more than two visits a day, then it is vital you have a ‘back-up’ carer to maintain a high standard of care, in the event your regular carer is unable to tend to your care needs.
We at TenderCare 4 You Ltd monitor all Service Users under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Policy (SVA) , because all Service Users are viewed as vulnerable, and therefore at risk of abuse.
TenderCare 4 You Ltd are monitored and inspected by the Care Quality Commission, to ensure the standards of care to our service users are maintained, and/or improved.
All carers will adhere to your agreed Care Plan for each visit. However, sometimes your carer will go the extra mile and help out with duties that is not included in your Care Plan.
All Care Plans can be changed to suit your care needs. Some Care Plans however, can be complex, therefore we will review your Care Plan regularly to monitor if, and when, changes are needed.
In your Care Plan, we establish your care needs, and the duties the carer will undertake and adhere to on each visit.
There are two ways of making sure that your carer completes the hours TenderCare 4 You Ltd agreed with you. Firstly, In your care plan there are Daily Recording Logs, which the carer must complete each time they visit you, detailing their ‘Start’ and ‘End’ time. This can be checked by you. Secondly, this process will be repeated on their Time Sheet, which can be verified against the Daily Recording Logs.
TenderCare 4 You Ltd will send you an invoice at the end of each month. We strongly advise that on receipt of your monthly invoice, you check the figures against the times recorded on the Daily Recording Logs.
With your agreement, a Manager will visit you on a regular basis to check that you are happy with the service you are receiving.
