The State of Health Care and Adult Social Care in England 2015/16 looks at the trends, highlights examples of good and outstanding care, and identifies factors that maintain high-quality care. It was written by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) through their findings between Spring 2015 and Summer 2016.
The report summarises that most services they inspect give ‘good’ care to the people they support even though they may now been doing this with less money to pay for it.
It also states that adult care services have been able to maintain quality but that there is concern over the sustainability of adult services. Adult services have less money coming in and need to pay more money to staff members.
Some services are changing the way they provide the care to people to try and balance how they can do more with less.
Quality care provision is at the forefront of Apple House Ltd and we are working creatively and flexibly to adapt to the social care market. Our main principles of being committed to provide compassionate, professional care which enhances the quality of life for our residents and enables them to feel supported and valued within the community in which they live, remain our priority.
