SweetTree Home Care Services has successfully passed an inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), meeting care quality standards in all areas and with staff described as “just fabulous”.
SweetTree, which has offices in central London, provides domiciliary and live in care to families across greater London and nationally on a live-in care basis. The company employs just over 400 people and has been providing quality care for more than a decade.
During a routine unannounced inspection carried out on 22 January, the CQC found teams met all care standards, providing service users with care, treatment and support that met their needs while ensuring their privacy, dignity and independence were respected.
The report highlights the positive experiences that clients and their families have with SweetTree, with staff being described as “just fabulous”. The report also noted that SweetTree matches its carers to clients based on their specific needs and taking into account culture, language and way of living.
Nicki Bones, director of operations at SweetTree, said: “We’re thrilled with the comments we have received in the CQC report. It’s fantastic to see the efforts and hard work of the team being recognised so positively.”
Barry Sweetbaum, founder and managing director of SweetTree, commented: “Another fantastic report from the CQC, which is testament to the amazing team of people we have at SweetTree and our commitment to their ongoing training and development. I am so proud of their dedication to providing the highest quality of care for every client.”
