Supervision of Staff

Homecare Solutions carry out regular reviews with our clients to ensure their needs are being met by the Carer. We also carry out spot checks on the Carer while in the home to ensure the best level of care possible is being provided. We use telemonitoring to ensure our carers arrive to your loved one safely. This works via an app on the carers phone which allows them to log in when they arrive and log out when they depart. The carer app is linked to our office database and we can monitor these logs in realtime.
