Independence

Independence means having opportunities to think, plan, act and take sensibly calculated risks without continual reference to others.  We aim to maximise our service users’ independence in the following ways.

  • We help service users to manage for themselves where possible rather than becoming totally dependent on care workers and others.
  • We encourage service users to take as much responsibility as possible for their own healthcare and medication.
  • We involve service users fully in planning their own care, devising and implementing their care plans and managing the records of care.
  • We work with carers, relatives and friends of service users to provide as continuous a service as is feasible.
  • We aim to create a climate in the delivery of care and to foster attitudes in those around a service user, which focus on capacities rather than on disabilities.
