We also asked people to tell us one thing we could change to improve our service to them and people let us know that

More carers for in home

I would like to know more about current/evolving services and events (well understood I'm sure if you are the inside but more opaque when looking in from outside)

Ensure if there are changes of a support worker due to illness that the client is aware of this change not when they answer the door bell.

Communicate

Suggest more activities or outings.  Have support people be more proactive in suggesting and facilitating activities.
