Supporting independent living

1 in 4 people in the UK are diagnosed with a mental health problem, and with the increasing numbers of people being diagnosed, it is important that access to home care and support is available. We understand that mental health issues can seriously affect daily living, and quality of life.

Mental illness can affect all people of all ages from young children to the elderly. It is different in everyone, and there are many differing causes; some are inherited genetically, whilst others are brought on by lifestyle or events. Without the right support and interventions, a mental health illness can prevent individuals from enjoying life.

Home care, part of the whole solution

We provide person centred care and support with a focus on outcomes to achieve ‘self-defined recovery’ that considers how each person wants to live within the context of their mental health condition. We also team up with case workers, social workers, family members, friends, and others working with individuals to support them to reach their goals. We track progress of goals and match staff to individuals’ preferences and locality. We help to promote better health with nutrition and lifestyles choice suggestions; promoting an active life for people with mental health issues.

Encouraging independent living

We also encourage independent living, whether that is to retain, or regain independence. Our home carers will help to support the local approach to safeguarding of people with mental health issues. We encourage people with mental health issues to have their say about the support they receive, and provide support based on dignity and respect. We work with people who are in receipt of Direct Payments, Individual Budgets, Individual Service Funds, and services purchased wholly or partly by the local council.
