Choosing the right care and support can be a daunting task – whether it is finding the right care home for yourself or a loved one, or identifying the best option for your healthcare needs. We can help with sources of support and information to help get you through this stressful time.

The way we receive health and social care services in this country is changing. We have more choice than ever before, but if you don’t know what to look for in your search for care, this choice can sometimes pose quite a challenge.

The first thing to think about is what kind of support you need. While a need for help with meals or personal care activities such as washing, bathing and dressing can often be obvious, sometimes things like companionship and assistance in pursuing hobbies and interests can be just as important for wellbeing and quality of life. It might be useful to write a list of both absolute necessities and wish list activities to help get a feel for how much support you might actually need.

The first step in finding learning disabilities support for yourself or someone you care about is to ensure you have a good understanding of your needs. These needs may range from occasional support in achieving increasing independence to more intensive or around the clock support and care.

Living with a mental health condition is a challenge both for the sufferer and their friends and family. We offer expert support for people living with a range of mental health conditions that have proved to be challenging, complex or long term.

We know that working towards recovery is not easy. For many it can be a long journey. Our teams have the expertise, experience and empathy to stand alongside our service users at every stage of their journey, providing the right level of care to encourage them to live as independent and fulfilling a life as possible.

Our approach is person-centred. This means we involve both service users and, where practical, their families and support networks in the planning and delivery of their treatment, care and support. We get to know each of our service users and understand their hopes, ambitions and goals so that we can reflect these in their personalised care and support plan.

We aim to provide you with services to help you live safely and independently, based on your assessment of need and eligibility for services.

We will work with you to:

  • Increase your independence
  • Increase choice and control in your daily life
  • Enable you to access other support services
  • Improve your quality of life
