Skilled shared support
Our staff are well trained and have many years of knowledge and experience to ensure that you are at the centre of the care plan developed with your support.
It is structured to assist with all aspects of your daily living.
It is therefore important that we aid you as much as possible in maintaining family and community links at all stages of your care package, including friends, carers and other community-based services.
Things change. You change. That’s why we always strive to keep your care package as up to date as possible, taking into account any changes or developments that you or your care team need or wish to make.
We recognise that there will be bumps along the way. With your support, we will help identify relapse indicators and develop coping strategies as part of any action plans.
Respecting your rights
This will be your ‘space’ – not ours. We therefore do everything we can to make it a place where you feel happy and secure. That includes respecting and safeguarding your privacy and dignity.
To ensure that we balance this with the rights and needs of your family and carers, we record and regularly review your consent to share information with others.
It is important for all concerned that communication is clear, effective, well maintained and in line with your needs and wishes.
Medication and health
It is important that we are all aware of your medication and physical healthcare needs.
As part of the assessment and planning process we will discuss your medication, how this is managed and what support you need in this area, in addition to personal hygiene, contraception and any other personal needs and requirements.
Money, and how it is managed, is an important part of daily life. This will be discussed with you and your care team, family or carers.
We will assist and support you with budgeting, where required, and will always be open and honest when it comes to your financial needs and wishes.
