At Active Care Group we provide highly specialised care and support to people with a huge range of physical and neurological conditions. Services range from those providing intensive support, to others offering a lighter touch support for people with greater independent ability to access activities. We provide services for both adults and children and are specialist in supporting a wide range conditions, including:
- complex care for those with brain or spinal cord injuries, as well as neurological conditions
- support for those with learning disabilities, challenging behaviour and communication difficulties
Our aim is to deliver first class quality care to everyone that we support, whatever their needs, whatever the setting, through tailor made packages designed to achieve the best outcomes possible for each individual and encourage independence.
Our multi-disciplinary team work with relevant healthcare partners, therapists, specialists and the local community services to provide the very best support for the individual.
Our highly trained teams work with individuals around rehabilitation and enablement to support everyone to develop skills and gain independence in a way that suits them.
Independence is key; people are supported to build an activity programme which suits them and meets their individual goals.
Keyworking and goal setting are utilised to provide a pathway for continuous improvement. Key workers meet regularly with people to help them:
- Identify goals and aspirations
- Consider skills, education and work
- Develop step-by-step plans
- Discuss activities and events they wish to take part in
We consider the development of life skills an essential part of gaining independence. The type of skills will differ depending on the individual and may include such things as travel training, money management, preparing food or eating independently.
