Our aim is to provide individuals with support tailored to meet their individual needs. We encourage people to maintain and develop as much independence as possible. By offering flexible services we can provide support for any length of time. This can be arranged on any days you prefer. The support sessions are often on going for as long as the person would like them. We enable people to access local facilities such as swimming pools, cinema, bowling, horse riding, eating out, college, shopping etc.
We can also provide a 'sitting service' to enable family members to go out or have a break from their caring role.
As we are registered with the Care Quality Commission so we are also able to offer personal care.
