Short Breaks for Adults

Adult Carers Our team of care support workers receive the best available ongoing training. We provide specialised care for adults with a range of needs, including physical or learning disabilities, dementia, or life limiting conditions and illnesses such as Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s Disease.

Nature of personal care provided

Our care support workers are well supervised, supported and trained to work with a wide range of disabilities and illnesses. They will undertake the tasks carried out by the carer so long as appropriate training can be accessed. In providing this support to the carer, the care support worker may also provide a personal care service to the person they care for. A personal care plan will be agreed with the person with care needs and may include the following: help with feeding, the management of continence of bladder and bowel, exercise programmes for rehabilitation and development under the instruction of a physiotherapist or occupational therapist and administration of prescribed medication.

Specialist Tasks

From time to time Care support workers are asked to undertake some tasks which may be considered by our insurers to be specialist. These tasks may be undertaken following appropriate risk assessments and only after specific training. The carer support worker would be trained in the procedure before undertaking the tasks with the person with care needs
