We offer support for disabled adults to either access their community, for personal care at home and short breaks, 24 hours a day.
Personal care at home is also known as domiciliary care, social care or home care. This means that we can support with getting ready for school, washing, dressing, taking medication, eating and any other personal support that they may need.
Everyone needs some time off once in a while. We offer tailored short breaks, also known as respite, for disabled adults. It gives them a chance to do something different, and gives carers a little time off. It can be for a few hours, a weekend or longer as required. With our short breaks the choice is yours – go out and have fun, or relax at home.
For activities, we can support adults to take part in local activities that they enjoy doing. This can be activities such as:
- Going shopping.
- Meeting friends.
- Sports and fitness.
- Travelling to college.
- Going to the pub, cinema, theatre, concerts or a football match.
Through our flexible support you’ll gain new skills, confidence and independence. It’s your choice what you’ll do.
Is it for you?
We support disabled adults with any condition or impairment. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments and learning difficulties.
We will talk with you – and others in your life who you want us to – to find out what’s important and how you like to be supported. Together, we’ll develop a support plan around the things you want to do, with a focus on what you’d like to achieve.
Your support staff
We’ll find support staff who you like and you’ll get on with.
Supporting disabled people for the past 60 years, 50 years in Dorset, we know just how much selecting friendly and caring staff matters. We train our staff thoroughly to provide safe and quality support.
You can pay with your direct payments, personal budget, private income, through the local authority and continuing health care funding.
Book us for an hour or two as you need, or at a regular time that suits you.
