Frequently asked questions
How your support is arranged
Arranging support is quick and simple, once an initial care assessment has been carried out by a FeelCare care manager a care plan is produced which includes: your care needs, timings of your carer visits, interests, contacts, medication and so on. When completed and agreed by you, a suitable care team member can then be matched with your file and introduced at a convenient time. For emergency and short-term notice bookings an introduction isn't always possible, but rest assured all our care team members are fully checked according to the Care Quality Commission's recruitment guidelines, please follow the link to view this checklist.
