Is there a requirement for clients who directly employ personal assistants to provide personal care to register themselves with the CQC, as there is a provision of regulated activity?
If the service user is employing the personal assistant themselves then they do not have to register with CQC.
If they however have someone from a home care agency working for them either permanently or temporarily then the agency will be registered with CQC.
