About us

Homestyle Domiciliary Care Limited is a domiciliary care service.  The philosophy of the team is to promote dignity, independence , choice, communication, equality, empowerment and individualism for service users by offering lasting contact and support to access other services.  It is our aim to promote these services to adults who have suffered from severe mental illness and/or learning disabilities.  Our philosophy and aims are that we are very aware that those who have a severe mental illness/learning disability are often living alone and because we feel strongly about this we would like to ensure that everybody will not have to cope alone.  Our service will never turn away anybody with a severe mental illness/learning disability and would like to promise a lasting friendly contact through our service either in person or telephone.

 Advocates

Service Users have the right to access external agents who will act in their interests to help them solve problems, discuss concerns etc. The Registered Manager will be happy to provide information on local advocacy groups and other support networks.

 

Principles and Values Underpinning Our Services

Homestyle Domiciliary Care Limited is committed to supporting vulnerable people so that they can continue their lives with dignity and independence and be participating members of their own communities. Because of this, in the first instance, Homestyle Domiciliary Care Limited is committed to meeting the needs of those people entrusted to our care. Usually we see no conflict between meeting the needs of Service Users and those of workers. Where such conflict exists, the needs of Service Users must take precedence.

Service User’s Personal Fulfilment

The aim of Homestyle Domiciliary Care Limited is to actively help Service Users to lead fulfilling lives within the limits of their abilities and wishes, and to recognise and cater for those who do not wish to be active or socialise.

Staff will take an interest in things that Service Users have done in the past and discuss current interests, particularly those that they wish to retain. They will assist Service Users to continue to use their skills and follow their interests if they so wish and facilitate a varied range of new skills and interests for Service Users to pursue if desired

Service Users will be involved in the devising of their Care Plan, and if they are unable to communicate effectively a family member, friend or external advocate will work on their behalf

Staff will endeavour at all times to create a stimulating environment and to focus on maximising Service Users potential. They will attend to the complete needs of the individual person irrespective of how the Service User’s disabilities affect them. All Service Users irrespective of race, gender, culture or health state are equal and unique human beings and will be offered help and Services according to their own unique needs.
