Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Here when I need them: 100%
I can rely on my carers to be here at the times agreed
 
Preparing food and medicine: 100%
I can rely on my carers to prepare my food, drink & medicine when I need them
 
Asking for my agreement: 100%
I can rely on my carers to ask if I agree to any new treatment or care
 
Support to make decisions: 100%
I can rely on my carers to help me make decisions, when I need support
 
Coordinating with others: 100%
I can rely on my carers to explain my needs to new staff or other services
 
Living independently: 100%
I can rely on my carers to encourage me to live as independently as possible
 
Choices of care and fees: 100%
I can rely on my carers to explain my choices of care and any fees I must pay
 
Questions or complaints: 100%
I can rely on my carers to answer my questions or respond to complaints
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Four attendances by one or two carers each day. Full support for personal and domestic needs. The customer is 94, immobile and frail.
 

"The care and service provided by the whole team and Mrs Thompson is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble; they are pro-active, patient and kind."

My stepmother Betty is visited once a week for cleaning and laundry services. Her laundry is collected weekly by the cleaner who returns it the following week. She also assists in changing the bed linen.
 

"The service from ĎExtra Handsí has been excellent so far. The initial visit was thorough and professional. Bettyís needs were assessed with care and understanding and the person provided to do the work was perfect in every way. Betty is already found of Sarah Slade and has nothing but praise for her industry and personal qualities. This to me is nothing short of miraculous knowing my stepmotherís normal attitude to strangers in her house."

Cleaning and help for doing laundry for my aunt who has recently moved to a sheltered flat at Sexon Court. North Walsham. My aunt is elderly (85 years old) but independent in some ways, quite dependent in others. Jenny, the extra hands worker provides additional support by chatting to my aunt as she works.
 

"Very pleased. Iíve met Jenny and Iím impressed with how quickly and well she has gained the confidence of my auntís needs and for making the necessary arrangement promptly and thoughtfully. Many thanks."
