Survey of Domiciliary Care Providers Northern Ireland

This publication presents information on the Survey of Domiciliary Care Providers Northern Ireland 2008.  The survey was carried out by Community Information Branch, Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety.  The recent Northern Ireland Audit office’s Older People and Domiciliary Care report (2007) highlighted the lack of information on the quality of domiciliary care in Northern Ireland.  The subsequent Public Accounts Committee recommended that the DHSSPS collect information on the quality of domiciliary care.  Providers were surveyed on their practices and procedures, whether their decision making was informed by the views of their users and whether they perceived themselves to be meeting regulations and minimum standards of domiciliary care introduced by the DHSSPS.  
This survey collected information on providers, prospective service users, written care plans, service users’ involvement, policies and procedures, staff, training and development and recording and reporting.
We would welcome any comments you would like to make concerning Community Information Branch Publications. Please take the time to complete our short questionnaire.
