New Local company Unique Homecare Services Ltd is innovative in its approach to dementia care.
Michelle Thompson Managing Director says “We recognised that to change the prevailing culture from task based care to true person centred care we had to have an entirely different approach to everything.
Starting with how we grow and encourage our team to be the best. We are happy for staff to come to us with little experience of care.
So that we can grow our own culture, staff are trained and mentored from day one. They are encouraged to get involved in training to suit their own ambitions alongside that required by the company and that their input and ideas count. Our team ethos is that if we feel good about what we do, our clients will too.
Our priorities are always the client and their wellbeing so sometimes the cleaning jobs will wait and companionship comes first. We believe in plenty of stimulation and work with families to find the best path forward.
We are working with Lancaster University on the Dementia Pioneers research project and encourage anyone who has thought about a career in care to contact us for an informal chat.”
