We assist adults with learning disabilities. Physical disabilities and or mental health problems to live as independently as they can within their communities.
Southern Family Care work closely with other professionals and extended families to ensure our services compliment the overall support provided to individuals within their home.
Our approach in partnership is to assist individuals to gain or re learn skills which will assist them to achieve higher levels of independence and to reach their own personal goals in life, whilst receiving the support they need to live safely within the community.
Using a person centred approach that places the needs and preferences of the service user at the very heart of the services we offer. We ensure that care plans not only address issues of welfare and safety but they are written monitored and reviewed in partnership with the individual service user and that the focus always remains on addressing an individual’s needs and aim to achieve the outcomes they seek in becoming happy, confident and independent citizens.
