Bespoke Packages of Care
Cymdeithas Gofal The Care Society provide Bespoke Packages of Care contracts to individuals across Ceredigion. The purpose of these contracts is to improve the outcomes and wellbeing of people who have specific care and support needs. We provide an individual one-to-one service (or two support workers to one service user where circumstances require it) delivering support to people with:
- Learning disabilities;
- Mental health problems;
- Physical and mobility issues;
- Old age and infirmity
The following list gives details of people who are supported through Care Society Bespoke Packages of Care. What they have in common is that they are vulnerable due to circumstances or conditions. While this list is not exhaustive and some groups may overlap, it gives a realistic indication of the wide range of people to whom The Care Society are able to deliver support:
- Individuals presenting with complex social isolation issues, following a sudden breakdown or deterioration of their personal circumstances, which would include the aged, frail or infirm;
- Individuals living alone with little or no social support network;
- Individuals who present with loneliness as an identifiable need;
- Individuals who have a support network, but due to physical or mental health issues have become socially isolated. This includes people with learning disabilities like autism, and people who are chronically ill;
- Individuals who enjoy minimal social interaction from their carers, cleaners, meal provision and other service providers but require a further element of befriending and support to be introduced;
- Private individuals with means but in need of our services and currently not referred through social services;
- Individuals who are the main carer for their spouse or family relative, which has resulted in themselves becoming isolated. Support can be offered to relieve them of their responsibilities for certain periods throughout the week.
- Active participation and social interaction in the community through increased engagement. Increasing a service user’s opportunities and choices builds confidence and wellbeing and provides people with a sense of purpose.
- Our community support service helps improve emotional wellbeing through companionship – offering a regular listening ear and being able to plan outings and excursions away from the home.
- Improved Quality of Life by enabling people to keep in touch with the world outside their home, avoiding deterioration in psychological and physical health and developing new skills and activities.
- Independent Living Skills through identified activities – shopping to aid independent living through cooking, household skills, healthy eating, budgeting, etc. This enables older people to remain at home & maintain their independence for as long as possible.
