The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator for health and social care in England.

It makes sure services such as hospitals, care homes, dentists and GP surgeries provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care, and encourages these services to improve.

The CQC monitors and inspects these services, and then publishes its findings and ratings to help people make choices about their care.

Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition.

Whether you attend a face-to-face Information Session or watch the online video, Dementia Friends is about learning more about dementia and the small ways you can help. From telling friends about the Dementia Friends programme to visiting someone you know living with dementia, every action counts. We run several Dementia friends sessions throughout the year. Please email info@carewyvern.co.uk to enquire about attending or hosting a session.

Don't just take our word for it...

Our aunt (100 yrs) was treated with intelligent care and respect despite her being awkward on occasions. Although Care Wyvern only assisted for 1 month we were very pleased and had she not had to go into residential care would have been happy and continued with Care Wyvern. The office staff were excellent every time we rang.

 

Mrs D

I would like to compliment Care Wyvern as they are motivational and have helped me, as previously I used to feel scared but they will give me time to talk and have discussed with me thought patterns, changing the way I think into a positive and achieving attitude.
Care Wyvern are very caring and they make me feel wanted and they are very helpful when I am ill, which is the time when I really need them.
They are more motivated to help when I am sick. I think the world of Care Wyvern.

 

Mrs D

Professional yet loving care. Liaised well with the family

Mrs R

My mother receives fantastic support from Care Wyvern, many of her helpers became good friends. The ability to change care plans quickly from 1 or 2 visits a week to every day was really good. Excellent staff.

Thank you for helping my mum.

Mrs L

Have had first class help from my carer. Sorry to say goodbye to her.

Miss C

The management staff are polite, approachable, helpful and any concerns noted. The care staff are well trained and caring and treat clients with dignity. Leading us to the death of my father, Care Wyvern staff were supportive, understanding and willing to adapt to the changing needs and medication requirements he had. They are also supportive and encouraging to my mother who is a dementia sufferer and I want the care staff she has come attached to, to continue to deliver personal care to her in her widowhood.

Mrs H

The carers who come and prepare food and talk to my mother are all very kind, caring and professional. They leave a note of what has happened during their call, so I can see when I come in if anything unusual happened and how my mother was.

The supervisors are very helpful and supportive and rectify any problems quickly. My mother has dementia and is treated with great respect and gentleness by all the staff. I feel confident that she is in safe hands with them and that they will contact me if there’s anything to do with my mother’s care that I need to be made aware of.

Mrs H

I was completely satisfied with the carers who came to me over five days. They were punctual, polite and caring.
