A CQC registered provider also legally has to have a Registered Manager in place to oversee all of the care that is delivered. In line with regulations, a Registered Manager must be fit to take on the role and have relevant health and care experience.
CQC vs Introductory Agency, which option is best for me?
There are two different types of live-in care provider. A care providers agency will simply source a qualified carer for you to employ, an approach which can reduce cost, but carries its own set of responsibilities. The introductory agency will not manage the carers pay, holiday and sick cover.
Fully managed providers employ full-time staff, train them well and select a carer that suits you. Many consider this a simpler solution and enjoy the extra peace of mind it brings.
