Personal support plan to meet your needs
Carers Break will visit your home and consult with you to design how you would like to be supported and then provide you with your personal support plan. This will be reviewed on a regular basis and will be updated when any changes occur. As part of our re-investment toward constant improvement, we utilise a first class Care planning system that allows us to update your care plan daily to reflect your needs and wishes in real time. Every detail is considered and every question is asked to ensure you are cared for the way you would like. Our excellent team of workers feedback to your care-plan, often while still at your home and any changes that need to be made are implemented immediately. When we visit you, we will ascertain your needs, personal choices and preferences and match a support worker to compliment your support plan.
We aim to provide you with the same support worker or small team of support workers so that you get to know each other, professionally of course. We strongly believe that having the same worker/workers will enable you to have the best support, thus improving your emotional health and wellbeing. We also listened to people who use our service, who say they prefer to have the same support workers providing personal care and support to them as they feel vulnerable having strangers carrying out this care.
Relationship matters – If is important to you then it is important to us.
We also provide a flexible service to meet your individual needs. You can purchase our service on a regular basis or as and when you would like, whatever you decide suits you, we will do our best to meet your needs. Remember we are here for you and not the other way around.
