My Homecare believe that, with the right kind of support, our service users can experience a positive and rewarding life. Whilst some people need support with most or all everyday tasks throughout their lives, many people with learning disabilities are able to live quite independently with minimal support using an enabling or coaching approach. My Homecare believe that positive change can occur through a person centred relationship built with the service user and their support member of staff.
 
Some people may display challenging behaviour at times, so our assessment will be thorough, discussing behaviour triggers and positive staff interventions. Challenging behaviour is a form of communication and our staff will be shown how to respond within the Positive Behaviour Support Plan. The PBS plan provides our support staff with a step-by-step guide to managing the challenging behaviour.  
 
When you arrange to meet our manager they can answer all your questions and help with any concerns you may have.

Our Team,
Befrienders and
Experience

Our befrienders are chosen following a rigorous recruitment process. All our befrienders and staff work references and history are checked, whilst they are also fully insured to be working in your home or trained to a high standard. Befriending service users have felt and continue to feel a positive difference to the levels of self-esteem, confidence and isolation.

 

This has helped them believe that other people are interested in what they have to say and improved their skills in building relationships..
