Winter 2019 updates

Posted on November 24, 2019 at 4:10 AM
A busy time of things recently! We have had our CQC inspection and are currently awaiting the full report and ratings and will post the results as soon as we have them. Early indications are leaving us feeling quietly confident though. All of the team have worked so hard and no matter what the outcome, some bottles of fizz will be on their desks. We have a couple of new staff members joining our fantastic team and look forward to working with them and introducing them to everyone. Our 'man... Read Full Post »

Time flies!

Posted on September 15, 2019 at 8:50 AM
We cannot believe how quickly time has passed since our last entry! So, what's been happening? We bought a minibus at the beginning of the summer as so many of our clients had said that they were feeling lonely, missed getting out and about and needed a little extra hand to do so. We do it as a 'not for profit' and in our own time and we have had some lovely outings.

Still trying to find a willing Santa and some elves - both dogs are in training for pulling a sledge (a very small one due to their breed and reluctance!) Our 'man team' are also showing some signs of reluctance to wear elf costumes. Still looking for suitable music and/or entertainment h... Read Full Post »

Personal Development

Each year we have a little fund that will assist some of our staff in areas that may not be strictly work related. At the moment, the same as last year, we will be sponsoring one of our staff team to have their driving lessons. My dad used to be a driving instructor and spent countless hours teaching me to parallel park and reverse - which probably contributed to his high blood pressure and heart problems in later life - and if he was still with us I am sure he would be giving lots of advice t...

The Inspection

Posted on April 26, 2018 at 12:55 AM
Inspections are always a little nerve racking as this is 'your baby' that's about to have a critical eye cast over it. This was no exception and the results are now back. Although we have a few issues to improve on, on the whole is was a very fair and helpful report from the quality team at Cornwall Council. We do need to update a few areas of our paperwork and we have thought of better ways of doing things in some areas thanks to our inspector's experience and wisdom. A fresh pair of eyes...
