We understand that every individual we support is different, everyone has their own like and dislikes, everyone responds in different ways to certain support strategies, there isn’t a single support solution that suits everyone which is why We Support adopt a Person Centered approach to every service users support plans.
When developing and updating any support strategies for an individual we always consider four key areas;
- The involvement and contact with family & friends.
- That the individual manages a healthy lifestyle and remains active.
- That social networks and contact with peers is maintained.
- What is important to the person we are supporting.
The Person Centered Support Approach is a way of thinking and doing things that sees the people using health and social care services as equal partners in planning, developing and monitoring care to make sure it meets their needs whilst also helping to increase their personal self-determination, improve their own independence and maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
