We achieve this by providing person-centred support throughout the day and night, provided by live-in Personal Support Workers, who stay with our clients normally for one to three weeks.
The purpose of the PSW Role:
The PSW role is to provide holistic person-centred care and support to our clients to empower them to have as much control and choice over their lives as possible, to live an independent and fulfilled life. This is achieved by assisting them with all aspects of their daily living, including work, education, personal support, independent living tasks, i.e. supporting in the running of their home.
Assist with personal care.
Supporting with activities in the community and helping to find new activities for people to do – community mapping.
Be a companion and show an interest in the lifestyle choices of the client.
Provide our clients with personalised care. Everyone is different and no support package will be the same.
Ensuring that the client feels supported, included and able to participate in the home and family life as well as accessing the community.

Domestic duties such as cleaning, laundry, and assisting in food preparation.
