• Do you want to choose and organise your own personal assistants?
• Do you want your personal assistants to be a friend, neighbour or relative?
• Do you want to choose who comes into your home and when?
• Do you want your personal assistants trained to meet your specific needs?
• Do you want to choose your own personal assistants without the responsibilities and risks of being their employer?
If you answered yes to any of the above then Elite Care can help.
At Elite Care we are passionate about the personalisation of care, and for almost 3 years we’ve been supporting the rights of people to have control over their support at home. We recognised that personal budgets and direct payments give people the chance to choose, employ and organise their own personal assistants – an opportunity to have full choice and control over their support at home.
However, in order to have this choice and control, people are left with the headache of being the legal employer of their personal assistants – with all the responsibilities and risks involved.
Elite Care realised we could remove this headache by helping people and their families to choose personal assistants themselves and then employing them on their behalf. In a nutshell – You choose and organise your ideal personal assistants and Elite Care employ them for you – allowing all the choice and control, but without the hassle! we will then help you arrange the details of your day-to-day support to suit your own routine. You decide who comes into your home and when – rather than it being decided for you.
Personal assistants can be neighbours, friends, family members (in certain circumstances) or someone found through advertising and interview, which we will help you with. Where there’s a training requirement, Elite Care will work with you to arrange tailored training for your personal assistants that matches your specific needs. Elite also help people with money management, by setting up an individual service fund, again to take yet another hassle out of managing your care and support.
Elite Care caters for anyone who needs care, including older people, children and young people, people with learning disabilities, people with mental health issues and people with physical disabilities and/or sensory impairments. The service from us can include all specialist services to meet the needs of all individuals.
Alongside help and advice on securing funding, assessment support and support planning, setting up individualised care packages and a dedicated care support officer to help manage packages on a day-to-day basis, Elite Care also provide a 24/7 telephone service and a local support manager, all to ensure everything runs smoothly. We’ll be involved as much or as little as you like – it’s your choice! The support is to CQC and National Essential Standards of Quality and Safety. Elite Care is a local service and we are proud to be helping hundreds of people in our local area to live independently in their own home.
