We work in partnership with all available professional support and, most importantly, include our clients in arranging every aspect of creating a flexible and supportive care package to suit their individual lifestyle choices. This inclusive approach enables us to enhance people£s lives and achieve the highest standards of care within a community setting. Our continued success is highlighted in our CQC inspection report. Through our partnership with Active Assistance, we can provide access to specialist clinicians including physiotherapists, nurses, ,rehabilitation specialists, clinical psychologists, speech and language therapists and occupational therapists. We place a high priority on staff development with an award winning in-house training team that provides a comprehensive induction programme, certificated update training and an in-house diploma programme.
