Compassionate home care and support services in the South.
We believe that helping people live the life they want to lead is extremely important.
Many people want to stay in their own homes for as long as possible and we’re here to help you do just that.
We can help in any number of ways, from cleaning and preparing meals for you, to helping you with personal care. We can help you get out and about to the local shops, or if you’re caring for someone with memory problems we can help access day opportunities for support and a much needed break for you.
If you’ve recently been in hospital or had something happen to you then our reablement services can help you get back on your feet until you feel confident at home again. We work with you to adapt the way you do things so that you can stay living independently.
All our care services are run on a not-for-profit basis which means all the money goes into providing your care. As we’re not looking to make a profit we can spend a bit longer with everyone we help, which means we have time for that cup of tea or to just sit and have a chat.
Please see the links below to read in more detail the ways we can help you.
We are happy to mix and match our services so you get exactly the level of support you need to stay at home for as long as possible.
I have worked in the health and social care sector for 12 years now in a range of roles including support worker, senior day service officer and care manager across a variety of different services; supporting adults and children with a learning disability, physical impairment or mental illness.
I started as a support worker for adults with a learning disability for a charity, and have had a passion for empowering practice ever since.
For over a decade I have studied health and social care alongside my career. As a result I hold an LDQ, NVQ3 and First Class degree in Health, Community and Social Care. I am also currently completing a Master’s degree in Philosophy and Education. These have enabled me to become an Associate Lecturer at a local University, and I have provided specialist lectures on Empowerment and Advocacy, Personalised Support, Intellectual Impairment and Physical Impairment.
My role at Social Care in Action is to ensure that the care services we offer develop innovative practice which will not only ensure quality, but a commitment to continuous improvement.
“It is a privilege to be able to work for Social Care in Action.
My background is predominantly domiciliary care focusing on mainly elderly/frail vulnerable adults, as well as Learning Disability, Mental Health and Dementia. I have worked in the industry for over 10 years under a number of job titles including management roles, therefore gaining a broad understanding of what it takes to provide quality care and support.
I have been lucky enough to work with a vast spectrum of people and organisations, having assisted with several initiatives giving back to the local community, as well as being a Dignity & Dementia Champion.
I have a great enthusiasm to continually improve the care that is received by individuals in their own homes to allow them to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.”
