Providing much needed social contact and space and breaks for parents who act as carers for their own son or daughter, Emerald Care Services caters for people with wide-ranging issues on the autistic spectrum - including those with challenging behaviours.
Since 2008 our team of highly experienced and qualified Support Workers have provided quality and needs led care support which is offered in full hour blocks for between four and eight hours per day - and can be arranged for any number of days per week.
With the benefit of one to one or two to one support, we can focus on skill development and the promotion of independence by integrating into the local community to access all the facilities available.
Our specialist support is geared towards individuals whose care is either paid for by Social Services or paid by their own budgets via direct payments. This care can progress to respite care and long term support. Delivering flexible community support tailored to individual needs, we undertake an assessment, which acknowledges each individual carer's views and we also liaise with other agencies.
We aim to provide a balanced timetable of activities appropriate to the person and set agreed goals, which we will record in their personalised care plan.
Our team always strives to work with parents and Social Services to enhance individual development, independence and integration into the local community. We will help each individual to set their own programme of activities which are balanced to meet the agreed aims of support.
Our team works with individuals who:
- Receive local authority funding
- Receive Independent Living Fund (ILF) payments
- Have private funding
