The report deemed that the service offered by CRG Homecare Wolverhampton is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led, with the homecare provider receiving ‘good’ ratings against each of the criteria.

Every day, our team goes the extra mile to provide exemplary home support in the local community, and we’re pleased with our rating – but we’re always looking for ways to continually improve our service offering.”
In the CQC report, service users praised the care workers for their kindness. One service user said: “I couldn’t have asked for more dedication from the carers – they greet me with a smile and excellent care given every day.”
