Children & Families
Our children's services are designed to ensure that the needs of every child are catered for. Particular attention is paid to ensure that all members of the child's extended network, such as educational and housing services are included in the design for children's services. We are able to provide valuable support to children who may themselves have learning or physical disabilities. Alternatively we provide services for children in situations where a parent or primary carer has social care needs, such as alcohol or drug dependency issues.
Our specialist services seek to provide increased independence and enable the best possible quality of life for people of all ages with learning disabilities. By using the extensive experience and knowledge in our social care businesses we are able to address the needs of a wide range of people. Our training and education teams ensure that the social care workers are suitably prepared and trained to support individuals. Many individuals with severe and complex communication needs, sensory loss and challenging behaviors are supported and enabled by our specialist care workers to make choices for themselves.
Our dedicated services provide a range of options to people that may have extensive demands due to their physical incapacity. Some of the most effective services are those that support a person in a simple and practical way. These services also engender a sense of satisfaction for the social care workers involved in providing high quality services. We are able to relieve the pressures on care networks and the informal support groups as well as providing support and enablement for the service users.
Our mental health services are specifically designed to meet the needs of service users who may have long-standing or transient mental health problems, including people subject to guardianship and supervision orders under the Mental Health Act.
We provide Hospital Discharge services which prevent unnecessary admissions to hospitals and to residential and nursing homes. We provide 24-hour, seven days a week support from care workers who are specially trained to deal with crisis home care situations; which could include night calls, personal care and practical services such as shopping in emergency situations.
We provide a comprehensive care solution that solves common existing problems encountered by care users as their needs change and as the care needs in the UK as a whole continue to grow. Care is delivered to the highest possible standard. With recruitment, training and administration demands supported by a dedicated team in the group, this means care teams are able to concentrate solely on providing excellent home care delivery.
The objective of our rehabilitation service is to prevent hospital or residential admission, to improve and support our service user’s general well being, to assist our service user’s to learn and acquire new skills necessary for daily living. Our objective being that we maximise our service user’s long-term independence and choice hence increasing quality of life. Our principle of care with enablement is to help our service user’s ‘to do’ rather than ‘do for them’.
To ensure we help and support you reach your personal objectives as set by Health Care Professionals, we ensure that enablement is occurring by continually assessing and reassessing your care plan, independence is encouraged at all times, examples of some of the enablement support we provide are:
