Our domiciliary care services are necessary to enable an individual who is in need of health and social care assistance to remain at home with a reasonable level of health, hygiene, safety and comfort, and delivered in such a way as to enhance their quality of life. It is an alternative to being taken into care home or hospital.
The service may be needed due to a permanent or temporary inability to manage their own care, because of frailty in advancing age, disability, physical or mental ill health, changes within the family causing the need for extra help, or the lack of necessary self-caring skills. The services that can be provided within the remits of Domiciliary Care may include personal care (assistance with activities of daily living), enablement, community meals, shopping, collecting pensions and allowances, or other services identified in the care plan.
Our goal is to enable service users to remain living independently in the community by maximising their abilities.
Our workers are thoroughly competent in supporting people with learning disabilities and can provide enabling care. We offer short or long-term support for clients with a variety of needs including Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder, Dyspepsia and Down’s Syndrome. No two individuals with a learning disability will be the same and so each client will require greatly different levels of support to manage day-to-day living. Some conditions can also be associated with a physical disability. Where it is needed, we can also offer support workers with qualifications and experience in handling challenging behaviours
