AN OLDMIXON care provider has been praised by health inspectors.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) sent a team of inspectors unannounced to Home Instead Senior Care in January.

It met all the required standards including ensuring good welfare for those it looks after and supporting staff.

The CQC report quizzed several people benefiting from Home Instead’s care, with one client saying they felt like they were being treated ‘like royalty’.

Joe Spitzer, who owns and runs the Oldmixon office, said he was pleased the first inspection had gone so well.

He added: “Amidst reports in the media that care organisations are lacking in crucial areas of care, it is really important that people are able to access information about quality providers in their area to give them peace of mind.

“We place our clients’ needs and wishes at the centre of everything we do and I was particularly pleased that people thought that their carer was looking after them in every possible way.”
