Promoting Independence

We work alongside  Physiotherapists, Case Managers and other Professionals involved in delivering individually designed care and support packages to Service Users who have been involved in life changing situations.

Enabling tasks involve assisting individuals by supporting and encouraging them to participate in housework and living skills, to restore lost confidence, regain lost skills, gain new skills and achieve and maintain maximum independence and self-reliance.
