Support In Your Own Home

Many of the people who engage with our service do so in the comfort of their own homes. Our teams are trained to support you with all aspects of daily life as well as working towards your personal goals. These include:

  • Assistance with getting up/going to bed
  • Bathing / showering
  • Dressing
  • Toileting / catheter care
  • Maximising independence
  • Meal / drinks preparation
  • Life Skills
  • Social activities
  • Transitional support
  • Employment skills and opportunities 
  • Travel training
  • Communication
  • Escort duties (carer to go in taxi or ambulance)
  • Supervision of medication
  • Day / night sits
  • Safety check visits
  • Collection of prescriptions
  • Cleaning / laundry / other domestic tasks

We are unable to provide nursing or clinical care that would normally be carried out by a GP or Community Nurse.

We provide pre-assessed bespoke care and support packages that ensure changing needs continue to be met.

We are able to provide you with a wide range of support packages in a friendly, interpersonal way for varying needs of support.

These include: re-enablement, support for those with a learning disability, maintaining residence at home, employment opportunities, housing support, mental health support, support to access the community and more.

Whatever your needs may be, we are confident we can provide you with a package of support best suited to your needs with your full involvement.

We will come and talk to you, or your support circle, and agree with you what support you need. Once we are working with you, we will regularly check with you that your support continues to be what you want and need.

We try and match the best person to work with you and, wherever possible, we want you to be involved in picking this person as we know it is important you feel comfortable with them.
