This policy sets out the values, principles and procedures underpinning this care at home agency’s approach to lone working in line with the national health and social care standards set out in My Support, My Life.

Policy Statement

This agency considers, in line with its duty of care to its employees, that lone workers should not be put at risk as a result of having to visit someone’s home on their own and often at times, when the risks to their personal safety are greater than usual.

The agency understands lone workers to be those who work without close or direct supervision or company for substantial periods of time. This includes most care at home staff who visit and care for people in their own homes.
