Whether your needs are complicated or simple, Autonomy Care can help. We provide support in the community and in your own home.
The support we offer ranges from the very demanding, which may include complex learning or physical disabilities, mental health, palliative care or a hospital discharge, to assisting with essential daily life skills such as shopping. Our clients are all ages, from children to senior citizens, and our support is available around the clock with an out-of-hours on call system in place.
Our specialist team are experts in person-centred assistance and staff undertake accredited Positive Behaviour Support training. Few care providers offer this. In our view it is essential for complex needs and transforms the quality of care across the board.
We work with our clients to establish not only their needs but also their desires and aspirations, and our support is precisely tailored to achieve both. We work with individuals, and those significant in their lives, to set - and achieve - short, medium, and long term goals.
These may change over time, so support plans are regularly reviewed and updated. This holistic approach is very person-centred and promotes positive outcomes and development of skills for life and leisure.
“Thank you to everyone on the team for everything during his recent illness. We feel confident that should it happen again he is in the best possible hands. Everyone went above and beyond and we couldn’t have asked for more.”
