We provide person-centred support for people with mild to severe learning differences. Promoting ability rather than disability, we seek to build support packages that focus on what an individual can do and move on from there. We always strive to achieve greater independence for the people we support in order to give them maximum control and choice over what happens in their lives.
We support people on the autistic spectrum to live as independently as possible, working towards identified goals and outcomes. This can be in shared housing, self-contained accommodation or for an individual living in their own home. We are aware of certain factors that may have an impact – the environment, sensory issues, communication, but recognise that no two people are the same and so support is planned accordingly.
Working closely with Mental Health Professionals, we provide support for people with long term mental health conditions who as a result, have social care support needs to maintain a level of independence. We understand that support should be flexible to allow for a fluctuation of needs and that the right home environment is an essential part of wellbeing.
We support people living with dementia and those with other health challenges who require some assistance to remain living at home.
PCAS staff see the person before the diagnosis and provide support in a person-centred way, promoting dignity, respect, choice, kindness and individuality.
