What is person-centred care and how do our Romford care services support you?

In an era where healthcare and caregiving are evolving rapidly, it’s crucial to prioritise a model of care that keeps the individual at its heart. Referred to as person-centred care, this is a philosophy that revolves around your needs, preferences and autonomy. We understand the significance of this approach, and we pride ourselves on our reablement homecare in Romford services that are designed to be truly person-centred. Read on to learn more about how we can support you or your loved one with our holistic approach to care. 

What are person-centred care principles?

Person-centred care is built upon several core principles that guide our approach to caregiving. The principles of reablement, as defined by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE), are particularly relevant to our services.

1. Personalisation – We recognise that every individual is unique, with distinct needs and preferences. To provide services tailored to your unique requirements, we begin by thoroughly assessing those we work with to ensure we understand what you are looking for. 

2. Collaboration – We believe in working closely with our clients, their families, and other healthcare professionals to ensure the best possible care. This collaborative approach promotes a sense of ownership and empowerment for those receiving our care.

3. Enablement – Reablement, one of the fundamental principles of person-centred care, focuses on enhancing a person’s capabilities and independence. Our services aim to support clients in regaining their skills and confidence rather than become dependent. 

4. Flexibility – Life is dynamic, and so are the needs of our clients. We are committed to adapting our care plans to accommodate changes, ensuring that individuals receive the care that’s right for them at any given moment.

Putting you first: our person-centred approach

Your care journey begins with a comprehensive assessment of your physical, emotional and social needs. This assessment informs the creation of a personalised care plan, ensuring that the care provided aligns with your unique requirements. Our care professionals are skilled in identifying areas where support is needed to facilitate clients in reclaiming their abilities. From mobility and self-care to cooking and household tasks, we provide the necessary guidance and assistance – while empowering our clients to regain lost skills and independence.

In addition, we foster open communication and collaboration among our clients, their families, and our care team. This ensures that the care provided is always in line with the evolving needs and preferences of the individual. Our clients actively participate in decision-making and care planning, ensuring they maintain a sense of control over their lives. To provide holistic care that considers the physical, emotional, social and mental health needs of our clients, we also offer companionship, emotional support and activities that promote mental stimulation and social engagement. Finally, our care plans are designed to be adaptable, making it possible to accommodate changing needs and preferences.
