Views & Opinions

“I have been impressed with the level of detail that goes into the support arrangements for [person] and how importantly any risks are managed and people here are kept safe. They [manager] discuss everything with us and am more than happy with things.”

Relative of Supported Individual

Relative of Supported Individual

“They [support workers] and the manager are so skilled at getting the best out of [person]. They understand the importance of routines for [person]. Fully recognise how even the slightest change can disrupt and affect [person’s] mood and behaviour. They are so good at managing this. Never fazed, always patient in their manner.”

Relative of Supported Individual

“We have regular team meetings, supervisions. Lots of opportunities to discuss things within the team. The managers are very hands on; always on the end of the phone if you need them but more often than not they are in the service; either in the office or on shift providing support. The training is spot on…some face to face in team meetings, on line, classroom and work books. The office is always open if you need to speak to the manager.”

“The staff are very good and alert to the slightest change in [person’s] mood and health and what this could mean. They take [person] to all their appointments at the doctors, hospital and help them manage their medication. They will contact the doctor or call the ambulance if they are concerned and always keep me informed.”
