Who We Support
Home, Residential and Community Care Support for Seniors
Our Enhanced Personal Support Workers provide high quality care services, so you can trust that your elderly parent or loved one will receive the support they want, need, and deserve.
We support independent living which means we will do things ‘with’ those we support, rather than ‘for’ them, wherever we can. It is important to remain independent for as long as possible, as this helps to keep a sense of wellbeing.
Our person centered approach means that we plan around the individual’s wishes, ensuring that they get the best out of life. Visits can support regular home help with domestic tasks, daily personal care for support with washing and dressing, or more specialist care and support for stroke rehabilitation or dementia.
We provide personal support for everyday living activities with a view to preventing or delaying the need for higher intensity and more costly care.
By providing services that have a preventative approach, our Companion Care support is aimed at promoting wellbeing and independence. Activities can include going out for walks, playing games and reading, participating in volunteer activities or any activity where a ‘companion’ would be helpful.
Cognitive and Behavioural Disability Support
To be able to take responsibility for oneself, rather than be a passive recipient of care is important for retaining a sense of wellbeing. Our Social Care Workers will support and mentor people with disabilities to live as independently as possible, encouraging and helping them to get the best out of life.
We can help no matter how simple, or complex the support needs are and with our person centered approach, we ensure that personal support plans are designed around the personal needs and wishes of the individual, family, friends, and any professionals working alongside.
Individuals can choose the type of support and care they feel they need with complete personalization, the type of support we can provide includes but is not limited to:
Personal Care: assistance with daily routines like washing and bathing, getting dressed and ready for the day, or settling in for the evening.
Practical help: support with daily tasks like light domestic duties, preparing and cooking meals, and shopping.
Social inclusion: arrange trips out, visits to friends and family, attending clubs or coffee mornings, cultural and other social activities.
We will work with the individual, helping them to do things for themselves as much as possible.
Our teams have extensive experience in working with individuals to help complement existing familial or community supports.
Many of the individuals that we support have been identified as having:
- Depression, anxiety and phobias
- Bipolar disorder
- Acquired Brain Injury

Our Social Care Workers
Social Care Workers are skilled in providing life and social skills programming, parenting, interpersonal communication and the implementation of behavior management strategies. They typically have a certificate, diploma or degree related to the field of social services along with additional training that equips them to optimize the personal and social development of those individuals they provide support.
A Social Care Worker uses shared life-space opportunities to meet the physical, social and emotional needs of clients. Social care work uses strengths-based, needs-led approaches to mediate clients’ presenting problems. A social care practitioner will typically work in a direct person-to-person capacity with clients. He or she will seek to provide a supportive, stable environment in which various social, educational and relationship interventions can take place in the day-to-day living space of the client.
