The agency, located in Laisterdyke, Bradford, offers home care to children, youngsters and adults.

A survey was conducted by the CQC inspectors to gather views of people regarding care being offered to them by the Claire Meade Care Limited. They also analyzed the sample of care and treatment records and the means by which they are being offered to the needy.
