We can provide high quality care for people with a range of conditions, including:

- Motor Neurone Disease
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Huntington’s Disease
- Cerebral Palsy
- Spinal cord injury
How can we support?
The support required for a neurological condition depends on the person, the condition and its stage of development.
Because we understand that an individual’s symptoms will vary, we ensure that the right level of bespoke support is delivered as this can make a significant difference to the quality of life of the person affected and their family members.
We can support people at all stages of their condition throughout their care pathway.
We take great care to understand the needs of each individual before creating a personal care plan that covers all aspects of their health and wellbeing, and helps them to manage their condition as well as maintain their lifestyle in the way they want to. This may involve daily care delivered in a person’s own home, or within a residential or supported living setting.
All our staff receive specialist training to ensure that they are competent to support their client’s needs, including use of appropriate specialist equipment required.
“Being at home means I can have my own life, see friends and enjoy the things I like to do.”
Being diagnosed with a life limiting disease such as Motor Neurone Disease is devastating, especially when faced with the prospect of no longer being able to live in your own home. This was a very real prospect for Bernie as he waited in hospital for funding.Luckily a suitable live in package was designed to enable Bernie to have stability, and despite his physical deterioration, to remain fully involved with every aspect of his care and the decision-making process.
Active Care Group has built a close working relationship with Bernie’s medical team and worked together to establish care interventions in order for Bernie to remain at home.
A Care Service Manager regularly visits him to manage all aspects of the care package and offer real support in advocating for him when he is no longer able to effectively communicate his wishes. Having a dedicated manager and regular live in 24/7 support has kept Bernie engaged with social activities and family events.
Active Care Group’s stated goal was to support people to live as independently and individually as possible, and enable people to achieve their aims. This was achieved through person-centred care planning. Care plans were personalised and described how people liked to receive their care. We reviewed one person’s ‘person-centred assessment’. It contained tailored information important to the person.
