Key Care Principles:
Ashton Domciliary Care aims to assist people with mental health problems who wish to remain in their ownhomes but are in need of support, guidance and care. Staff working for the agency will be committed to work in accordance with current legislation and to providing a good quality service and flexibility in the routine of visits. We also want to help service users to realize personal aspirations and abilities in all aspects of their lives and encourage service users to exercise choice, independence and control over their lives.
All staff employed by the agency are experienced carers who have worked with people with mental health needs. They have received training in safe working practices, understanding and working with mental health and hold National Vocational Training Awards.
We strive to give help in intimate situations as discreetly and sensitively as possible and ensure confidentiality of information held about service users.
Treat each service user as a special and valued individual, help service users to present themselves to others as they would wish through their personal appearance and behaviour. Tackle the stigma which service users may suffer through disability and status.
