Isle of Anglesey CC secures good home care services which have promising prospects for improvement, according to a report published by the Social Services Inspectorate for Wales.

The inspection was undertaken in January 2002. The inspectors found the services to be fast and flexible helping to maintain vulnerable people in their own homes. The services have good links with social workers and health service staff. Inspectors found that the services were provided by a highly committed and experienced staff operating at all levels.

The report makes seven recommendations. These included the need to develop a commissioning strategy to build on the strengths of the existing services and develop more service options in the future. The report also recommended that the authority should work in partnership with independent providers of home care services in matters such as joint training and the support of frontline staff outside normal office hours.

Chief social services inspector Graham Williams said: 'Good home care services are essential in maintaining vulnerable people in their own home. They also play an essential role in allowing the safe discharge of people from hospital. I look forward to Anglesey building on solid foundations to develop these services further in the future.'
