Every person that Good Oaks cares for is treated as an individual. We meet people with learning disabilities and their families, and carefully talk to them and assess what their needs, wants, hopes and ambitions are.
If we can help, we then put together a plan to work in partnership with them to meet their needs. This can range from a visit a week to help take them out into the community for their weekly shop, to intensive, 1:1 live-in care.
- Friendly, compassionate and experienced carers
- Personalised care plans to maximise independence
- Cost-effective and safe
- Constantly reviewed and updated care plans
Mr B has moderate learning disabilities and is living alone. He was referred to us by a charity that had been working with him. We met Mr B and his friend and talked to him about what he could do, and what he found difficult.
We provided a package of care to help him to go out into the community and to visit the bank and the shops on a weekly basis, as he was finding it difficult to use public transport.
We made sure the same carer, who he developed a good rapport with, was available at the same time every week to help him, and we regularly meet Mr B to review his care and his needs.
Good Oaks enabled Mr B to remain part of the community, and he continues to look forward to our visits.
