RESPITE CARE SERVICES
LOVE@care respite services can be arranged for a range of reasons, covering a variety of planned
or unplanned circumstances. We can stay at your home or breaks away.
Personal centred support
Depending on the circumstances and an individual’s needs, a respite service can range from a few days to a few weeks and can be arranged on a recurring or one-off basis. LOVE@care provide personal centred support that meets the individual needs wants and wishes, whatever level of care they require and however long they require the service. Our respite care is provided by highly-trained, experienced, caring staff, fully committed to making even the shortest time a positive experience. We encourage people using our service to fully take advantage of this, by planning social activities, events important to them so that their time with us is all about them and they have a chance to meet new people and experience new things.
LOVE@care ensure that our clients receive a high quality of support such as we would expect for our own friends and family to live life their way and to participate as much as possible in their communities.
All our staff receive mandatory training which includes; Moving & Assisting, Medication, Food Hygiene, First Aid, Paediatric First Aid, Health & Safety, Personal Care, Stoma/Catheter Care, Bowel Management, Adult Support & Protection, Child Protection, Children’s Rights, GIRFEC, PVG, Behaviour Management and Infection Control. We also put our staff through personal development and ensure they have access to SVQ in Health & Social Care at various levels.
For complex care packages we ensure that the care staff are fully trained in Dementia, Palliative Care and Monitoring & Operating Ventilators. We also give staff additional training to meet the individual needs of the person we are supporting. By doing this we can focus on the person's quality of life and help them achieve their chosen outcomes within the care plan.
