Who it’s for
We provide care services to people with a range of needs.
As we get older, we may require additional help to stay well, safe and at home. Our flexible services provide the support you need to stay living within the comfort of your own home.
The services we provide can support physical needs whether they are minor or complex involving multiple conditions. Our services support people to live purposeful lives within their communities, to have choice and control and enjoy new experiences.
We can provide our services to people who live independently at home or within supportive living accommodation. Our services are focussed around individual care plans promoting quality of life and social activities and experiences.
End of Life Care
Our end of live care is provided to recognised specialist standards. We work with the individual, families and professional networks to ensure that the support plan is holistic and multi-agency led.
Mental Health needs
We provide our services to people with mental health needs who require support to ensure their needs are met. The services we offer are person centred, flexible and promote a positive sense of well-being.
Our care services promote positive well-being to support people with dementia to stay living at home. All our carers receive extensive nationally recognised training in dementia care and we work with families and specialist health care professionals to promote person centred care, safety and well-being by focusing on a persons senses and responses to encourage positive engagement.
Our services are delivered using specialist care plans which have been devised by working in partnership with specialist brain injury units. The support plans focus on meeting essential needs and help people to lead a fulfilling and active life. Our specialist teams are trained and work with realistic goals set to help each individual reach their potential.
Our services cater for people who have a neurological condition, this maybe from birth, through a slowly developing illness, or through a brain injury. We work with the individual, family members and the multi-agency team to ensure the care is person centred and includes information which helps us know the person such as their condition, how it effects them and what’s important to them like how many sugars in their tea.
We are able to provide support to a disabled parent to help them to carry out their parenting role. Parents who are disabled may encounter particular challenges related to their disability and our services support them in overcoming these challenges.
