Whether you are born with a disability, or it's acquired later in life and whether it is permanent or temporary, it's important to have some independence.
Independent living is more possible now than it ever was before with Direct Payments, Individual Service Funds, and Individual Budgets providing more choice and control, and the ability to choose your own help at home.
Our support workers support and mentor people with physical disabilities to live as independently as possible, encouraging and helping them to get the best out of life.
Servic users can choose the type of support and care at home they feel they need with complete personalisation, the type of support we can provide includes but is not limited to:
Personal care: assistance with daily routines (eg washing and bathing), getting dressed and ready for the day, managing medicines, or settling in for the evening.
Practical help: support with daily tasks like light domestic duties, preparing and cooking meals, and shopping.
Social inclusion: arrange trips out, visits to friends and family and attending, clubs/day centres.
Community inclusion: we can help with joining and engaging with local volunteer or community groups and events.
We will work with the individual, rather than for them, helping them to do things for themselves as much as possible.
We firmly believe that a physical disability should not impede rights to choose, or hinder achieving goals in life. Everyone is different and as needs change, we monitor achievement towards the personal aspirations of those we support, regularly checking their support plans for progress.
Community Care Choice is a person centred organisation which supports individuals at home and in the community throughout Glasgow and the west of Scotland.
Our support allows our users to live their lives, realise their potential and fulfil their ambitions.
