A Guide to Understanding Care Home Rules and Regulations

Care home facilities are integral to help people suffering from illness, addictions or any disabilities and play a vital role in them leading a healthier and better life. But given the uncountable number of health care centers sprouting, it has become vital that some specific care home policies and procedures are laid down to keep a certain level of quality control as well as standards to adhere to. This is often realized by the Care quality commission or the CQC.

Role of CQC

An independent body regulating and controlling the standard of health care in any country, its main driving purpose is ensuring a safe, efficient and a good quality humane care given to all patients by the care providers or staff of the institution. To realize it, CQC conducts regular inspection, monitoring as well as training of the staff members. They release a regular rating chart which ranks the various care homes according to their performance. This helps people understand the quality of help received in a particular care home facility.
The CQC also ensure that the rights of special condition people like Alzheimer’s disease, Down’s syndrome etc. are not compromised with. CQC is also responsible for looking into the welfare of the people registered under the mental health act.


This offers a number of benefits such as –
  • Such home care facilities inform and consult patients of all treatment formats before executing them. Respecting the privacy, one is given utmost help support and encouragement to live a realistic life as far as possible.
  • The CQC registered care houses have a mandatory rule of performing thorough needs of each resident. They ensure a quality food to patients and do not discriminate between anybody on basis of caste, creed, sex, disability type or any other deviation.
