OUR STAFF ARE NOT JUST PEOPLE WITH QUALIFICATIONS – THEY ARE PEOPLE WHO REALLY CARE ABOUT WHAT THEY DO.
All our 24-hour nursing needs are delivered by registered Nurses trained to provide specialist care. As with all other members of staff, our Nurses are selected for their personal qualities as well as their professional qualifications. Respecting older people and recognising each resident as a unique individual, they provide not just high quality nursing skills, but truly person-centred care.
We seek to meet physical needs and frailty as they advance with ongoing nursing care. Most of all we ensure that each service user is treated with respect and dignity that we all deserve.
Our approach to nursing care is based on the use of personalized care plans. Drawn up with the individuals we support and their families, our care plans will help ensure that each person we look after is treated with respect and that their independence and choice are maximized.
Are you a carer for a disabled, frail or elderly person?
The sitting service gives families the opportunity to take a break with peace of mind. The service provides fully trained staff available to care for:
Do you worry about leaving them at home alone to attend appointments?
The sitter can provide companionship, support and personal care and assistance that would normally be provided by the family. This can include accompanying them on leisure activities, such as trips to the cinema, the library or to go for a walk.
Would you appreciate some time to go shopping or catch up with friends? Or even just some time for yourself?
Our sitting service provides friendly, reliable, trustworthy staff to ensure that you get the break that you deserve. All our staff are DBS checked and are Dignity Champions.
The service is available on a regular or occasional basis for anything from two to eight hours, between eight in the morning and eleven at night, seven days a week. This should be agreed after an assessment and can be arranged by a social care worker, or the carer if they use the Take a Break scheme.
This service is available to anyone with a need for it whether they qualify for assistance from social care services or fund their own care.
