Regulated Home Care

Regulators across the United Kingdom and Ireland set out standards of care that regulated companies must adhere to. A regulated home care and live-in care provider employs its care assistants directly and is regulated by a governing body. In England we are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). As mentioned above we are rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC, this is only awarded to the top 4% of care companies. At Bluebird Care Camden & Hampstead we have been awarded an 'oustanding' rating in every inspection we have ever had, a huge achievement.

Being regulated ensures a set standard is being achieved when delivering care and you can rest easy knowing your chosen provider is safe to deliver care.

What Makes a Good Home Care Provider

Home-care providers come in many different shapes and sizes, not to mention regulated and un-regulated. Unregulated care providers are not governed by any rules or guidelines and do not have to meet certain criteria. These often come in the form of an independent personal assistant or a smaller independent company. In some instances, you may find yourself in the position of being an ‘employer’ and have the associated insurance risks, the burden of national insurance and so on. Things to consider here are:

  • Do they have adequate training?
  • Do they have experience?
  • What happens if they are sick or on holiday?
  • Do they have any reviews or customer testimonials?
  • Do they have insurance?
  • Will they charge you additional travel time?
  • Do they have relevant Police checks such as DBS?
