Complaints, concerns or compliments
Compassionate Heart welcomes you to give feedback on the services you receive as a way to develop our service. We have an open process on how you can raise your concerns and you will receive a copy on starting the service. We want to make sure that you are aware of this option if you wish to make any complain or complement our service.
The team will regularly check that you are satisfied with the services that you receive from us. We share this information with the national regulator for homecare services as they have the responsibility in making sure that homecare services meet the requirements of the law and fundamental standards of quality and safety. Each regulator carries periodic inspections to check our services. As part of these checks they may ask you for feedback on our service to you.

We've been there. We understand.
Rosemary and her team helped me and my family through an extremely difficult time both before and after my mother died. Her commitment to my mother's care was at a level I hadn't seen before. We couldn't have got through it all without her love and warmth, and I cannot recommend her enough to anyone who wants the absolute best care for their aged family.
