How We Care
University Care offers support for people of both sexes with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, epilepsy, personality disorder, and complex needs from the age of 18 to 65 for all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. University Care places great emphasis on providing supportive care in a small, home-like environment. We operate our home in a transparent, open manner and we, therefore, welcome visitors and inspections from all relevant regulatory bodies. As far as it is practical our services are open to all older people who seek them. Admission is based on the particular home’s capacity to meet the assessed health, personal and social needs of the individual applicant.
Person Centred Approach
At university Care, we pride ourselves on taking a person-centred approach (PCA) to turning lives around. This means that we put the individual at the heart of everything we do, which produces the best outcomes and, in turn, provides mechanisms for benchmarking, evidencing and reviewing.
A person-centred approach is a way of supporting and working with people that informs our whole culture. So we’ll always put the client at the centre of the care they receive – and provide a framework for them to plan and set a direction for their life.
Each person-centred service is different. Rather than just place people in a pre-existing service and expect them to adjust – we will adjust to them. They will play a large part in the development of the service, how it looks, feels and operates.
