We take great care to make sure each of our clients receives the kind of care that works for them. Our expert team of nurses assess every client’s clinical and social requirements to develop a bespoke, comprehensive care and lifestyle plan.
Our personal care assistants are trained in a wide range of skills to support locked-in clients, including skin care, bladder and bowel care, nasogastric and PEG feeding, tracheostomy and ventilator management.
We also work with our clients and specialist support as appropriate, eg. physiotherapists and speech therapists, to develop exercise regimes that maintain muscle tone and implement communication tools, such as spelling boards or computers that track eye movements.
Our approach to care goes beyond supporting physical health needs, to include a focus on wellbeing. Research has shown that enhancing the quality of life for people with locked-in syndrome is closely linked to their social environment.
We look for innovative ways to support clients with locked-in syndrome to enjoy interaction with their family and friends, and continue to enjoy favourite activities.We work closely with our clients to enable them to develop and maximise their abilities - including through the use of assistive technologies – and support them in taking control over their lives.
Taking a proactive, positive, and problem-solving approach to supporting our clients is central to the way we work; developing bespoke care, tailored to individual needs and circumstances of our clients.
