Finding the Right Care for your Needs
CTRC embraces individuality and ensures that all the services we provide are based on individual assessment and planning that reflects individual needs and personal preferences.
CTRC ensures that all Service Users are thoroughly assessed before the provision of any care and support. Once assessments have been completed we aim to meet the Service User’s identified needs. We also aim to provide flexibility to change the needs and requirements of the Service User, and thus the level of support, as and when required. This change in provision of support is identified through the review process.
The assessment process is outcome led. This means that during the assessment, the CTRC Care Manager will ask what you want to achieve and write this down as a goal or outcome for the support that you are given. Then, at the review process we, and you, can see whether or not you have achieved the goals/outcomes that you set.
CTRC’s aim is for all the people we support to be able to answer yes to each of the following statements:
- I am safe and not being taken advantage of in any way
- I am safe from all forms of abuse and neglect
- I am safe and secure in my home
- I am supported if I am unwell
- I have a support plan focussed around my needs which is regularly updated
- I receive support delivered in a dignified manner
- I am not discriminated against for my chosen lifestyle
- I am not discriminated for any disability I have
- I am shown privacy when I request it
- I am listened to
- I am treated with sensitivity for my needs.
CTRC meets the above aims and objectives by working to policies and procedures that promote high quality principles that take into consideration rights, privacy, independence, security, civil rights, choice and fulfilment.
Before we provide a service, we ensure that your needs and preferences are thoroughly assessed by our experience staff. CTRC aims that needs are re-assessed as frequently as necessary, and that the support provided has the flexibility to respond to your changing requirements.
CTRC Care Manager meets with the Service User, and/or the Service User’s representative or family member and talks about whether or not goals/outcomes have been met.
- If they have, are there new goals/outcomes that the Service User would like to achieve?
- If the goals/outcomes have not been achieved, what can CTRC Support do to help the Service User achieve them?
- What changes do we need to make?
- Are the goals/outcomes unachievable or can we adapt them so that the Service User can achieve them?
The review process offers the opportunity for the Service User to talk in confidence about:
- The support that he/she has received
- Whether the CTRC Support Worker(s) has given a good service
- What are the perceived wrongs in the support given
- What is right about the Support given
- What changes would the Service User like to his/her provision of Support/care
- The punctuality of the Support Workers.
The Review Process gives CTRC the opportunity to test the effectiveness of the service and gives the CTRC Care Manager valuable feedback on the service provision. We value criticism so long as it is something that is within our ability to change
CTRC will always co-operate with Service Users and other professionals so that the Service User can maintain his/her independence. We review our aims and purposes on a regular basis to make sure that we are giving the best Support possible
