  4. Can Holywell provide my Dad with a female Gujarat carer that can make chapattis?

    Since Holywell recruits staff from all ethnic communities to meet each client’s needs and preferences, we can search for a carer who would meet the stated requirements.  We ensure that the carer and client are as compatible as possible on religious, cultural and linguistic grounds and, whenever possible, share the same interests.
  5. What happens if my mother does not seem to get on with a certain carer?

    It is not uncommon for people to find at some stage that they do not get along.  All of our clients are encouraged to provide feedback on their satisfaction or otherwise with the service that we provide.  If your mother does not get on with a carer, either you or your mother should contact a Holywell manager who will act on your request.
  6. How can I be sure my mother’s needs, wishes and preferences are met?

    Holywell’s quality assurance system includes client satisfaction surveys, and follow up visits by our team leaders, care coordinators and managers.  They check on our staff’s punctuality, compliance with individual clients’ care plans and ‘customer satisfaction.  We have found that our system provides an early warning of potential problems, which can be corrected at an early stage.  If erros occur, we take steps to correct deficiencies.
  7. I live quite a long way away from my mother and worry that if she might become unwell.  Could a carer be arranged at short notice to stay overnight and maybe help her with shopping and domestic chores?

    It is always easier to find a carer if we have more advance notice but Holywell maintains a bank of staff who are usually available at quite short notice to provide a sleep-in service or waking watch.  All of Holywell’s carers are capable of providing help with shopping and housekeeping tasks.  We can also arrange cleaning services on a more regular basis.

Safeguarding
Abuse is all too common and we actively raise awareness about the risks people might face. Abuse is a violation of an individual’s human and civil rights by another person or persons and may result in significant harm to, or the exploitation of the person being abused. Abuse can take several forms: it might be physical, verbal, psychological or emotional; it might be financial or sexual. Abuse can be an act of neglect or a failure to take necessary action to support the person who is at risk. Our staff receive induction and ongoing refresher training in the recognition and response to suspected abuse. We work with local authorities and the police in managing cases of alleged abuse and actively safeguard the wellbeing of the people we support. For further information click here
