Taking care of an ailing family member can be a full-time job. Our staff are here to help you take a break. This may include household domestic tasks, personal care, and meal preparation. When dealing with people with learning disabilities, we know that getting into a routine is very important and we can support with appointments and getting involved with communal activities, hence facilitate socialisation.
While preserving your dignity and independence, we can design a support package that best suits your needs. We want to help you be part of the community just like everyone else.
Caring for someone with learning disabilities is a full-time job, and we’re here to give you a break, some encouragement, and some peace of mind when you need it.
The learning disability range is broad and complex. No matter how severe a person’s needs are, we can accommodate them in a very compassionate manner. We can meet your care needs whether you are a family caregiver in need of a break or some extra help, or an individual considering moving out on their own. We are here to help and extend our professional assistance.
Respite care is temporary relief from regular caregiving duties, typically for a period of one to two weeks but where applicable we can be flexible with time frames.
During the respite (short term) care we capitalise on our expertise to help service users and their primary caregiver to acquire as much knowledge as possible hence enabling users to enjoy a good quality of life and achieve goals that they once believed unattainable.
Our qualified and experienced personnel build a learning programme using therapeutic activities, individually designed to meet each person’s needs and aspirations. Working in groups helps individuals build confidence, taste new experiences and make new friends.
Remaining socially active is key to living with dignity and independence. Fun, adventure and freedom are what holidays are all about. People with learning disabilities can experience the same level of fun, exciting activities and meet new people just like the rest of us. Nevertheless, planning a trip can be a challenging task and this is where we come into play.
We know that planning is paramount when dealing with people with challenging behaviour and at Superior Care Group we excel in making sure that we leave no stone unturned. We will sit with your family members and design your holiday package and collectively decide the level of support and assistance needed.
It is a crucial decision to have a stranger staying overnight in your home and it is totally understandable that you may have some reservations and trust issues. With Superior Care Group you can rest assured that we have taken all the precautionary measures to have a well vetted workforce who we have ourselves put the trust into.
A caregiver who provides overnight care stays with you in order to help continue the normal daily activities. Every aspect of a person’s care is important, and it doesn’t end when the day ends.
These services are flexible and can be modified or re-adjusted as per your requirements.
We put a lot of resources into training for people with learning disabilities and emphasise on getting to know the individual rather than the disability itself. Our 24-hour live-in and waking night caregivers help the service users succeed in their endeavours to and lead a meaningful life.
Our learning disability care is based on promoting autonomy, and many of our users find that having care at home gives them greater independence, more options, and the chance to be close to their loved ones.
We encourage independence whilst maintaining safety, focusing on the positives and what a service user can do, not what they can’t do.
Many of our caregivers become pillars of support for their service users, allowing them to pursue their ideal daily lives with confidence, independence and ergonomic assistance.
Many people take advantage of the community-based offerings. We refer to these as “day opportunities.” Your day can be tailored to fit your specific interests and preferences.
We assist people with learning disabilities to attend centres whereby they are able to learn new skills and achieve a more meaningful way of life.
When visiting day care facilities, we make sure that the organisation communicates effectively in ways most suitable to the service users, avoid jargon or complex languages, be innovative and daring in exploring new tools, let the service user take the lead and follow in the path while making sure that they are safe, work at the service user’s pace, check they understand and be creative.
Our service users can take advantage of individualised assistance around the house through the domestic care service we offer. You may be experiencing age-related frailty and unable to undertake as much housework as you once did, or you may be living with a disability or medical condition that limits your mobility and therefore means you could benefit from occasional assistance around the house.
If you need assistance around the house but are unable to do it yourself, our staff can come to your home and provide as much or as little assistance as you need.
We will get to know you and your preferences regarding domestic care and home maintenance in order to tailor a service package that meets your needs.
A change in circumstances may necessitate home care immediately. We have the capacity to cater for your immediate needs and start care, support in as little as 24 hours of you reaching out to us. One of our reliable caregivers will be able to assist with the following: visiting carers, live-in, waking night carer, cover at short notice and assistance for urgent palliative care.
All our services will be tailor-made and we shall not compromise on your desired outcome. Strict protocols will be adhered to just as for the commissioning of a normal referral.
A person’s behaviour is considered “challenging” if it creates safety concerns for themselves or others or negatively impacts the individual’s quality of life.
People with challenging behaviour may have the inability to take part in regular day-to-day activities.
As a provider of regulated social care services for adults with learning disabilities, we focus on helping a wide range of challenging behaviours, and other complex needs. Our goal is to pave the way toward a future in which people with complex needs can flourish; and our mission is to do whatever it takes to make that a reality.
People are vulnerable when they move between parts of the health care system. As a care provider we are well conversant with the logistical obstacles this may cause as it implies safety issues and unnecessary stress which can take a toll on the service user’s physical and mental health.
As a company we want the transition to flow smoothly, hence our commitment to working hand in hand with all stakeholders to facilitate the transition phase into our care. Under the registered manager’s supervision, a dedicated team operates to enable all new referrals, this may include those being discharged from hospital, residential care homes, by the clinical commissioning group or any other institution.
