Responsive care is a new way of delivering person centred care to meet the changing needs of the individual.
Our ‘Pay as you go’ care packages make getting support as and when needed, easier, cheaper and far less intrusive, helping to keep an individual as independent as possible.
How it works
The whole idea of Responsive care is that it does what it says on the tin. We provide care when needed without the constraints of scheduled calls. This way care is delivered when needed most and in an affordable way.
It’s as simple as making a phone call or pushing a lifeline we can have a carer attend to help support with personal or domestic care.
A small monthly administration fee is charged with each additional hour of care delivered, invoiced at the end of the month which means that you are able to manage your money and your independence to your own needs ALL of the time.
Who can use Responsive care
Anyone who needs support is welcome to use Responsive Care although it’s more suited to the individual who has capacity to make decisions regarding their care package.
Everyone has good days and bad days and a we acknowledge that with our new Responsive Care package.
With its flexible approach and our extensively trained Community Response Team, you can live your life to the fullest knowing that we’re always here when you need that little bit of extra support.
