Frequently Asked Questions
Are you registered with CQC (Care Quality Commission)?
As a case management organisation we must register as a care agency because we have more than one Case Manager and assist with the recruiting, training and supervision of care staff. Because we recruit nurses when a person has nursing needs we have registered as a nurses agency.
What happens after my case is settled?
We continue to provide as much case management as is needed, for as long as is necessary.
Why should I use Independent Living Solutions?
