We understand that muscular dystrophy and associated muscle diseases can create different physical challenges over time. That’s why we don't just focus on today, but in delivering reactive and diligent care that will meet our clients' needs as time goes by.
We recognise the emotional strain that dealing with muscular dystrophy can place on an individual, and those close to them; feeling dependent on others, and lacking in independence.
Our approach to care planning for our clients goes the extra mile, taking into account our clients lifestyle choices as well as all their health needs. We encourage emotional well-being by motivating and enabling our clients to take part in activities they enjoy and interacting with others.
We pride ourselves on providing a flexible service, tailored to our clients needs. In short, we’ll provide the support they need to enjoy enjoy a full, independent life in their own home.
For our younger clients, this includes supporting families in their primary carer role, including working in partnership to find ways to facilitate family life for every member of that family.
We believe that every client should receive the care that works for them. As such, we make sure that all of our personal care assistants receive training specific to the clients they are working with, which often includes:
- ventilator care;
- respiratory management;
- tracheostomy change;
- tracheal suction;
- chest percussion;
- oxygen therapy.
Our expertise and experience in all these areas means we are well placed to support individuals and families at all stages of muscular dystrophy.
