At Gofalus, we want the people we work with to live their lives their own way and to realise their potential, whatever their impairment or disability. You don’t have to live your life any differently because you need a little extra help. What we want is to make your life easier, supporting you to do the basic tasks of daily life, so you can focus on the things that are important to you.
We are committed to empowering individuals with Learning Disabilities by enabling them to develop daily living skills and relationships, as well as by increasing their confidence. Through individually tailored packages of care and support, Service users can build the skills required to move from residential care to supported living and, eventually, to their own flat, where they can be supported by our carers.
We will talk to you, your family or other people important to you, to decide on the best way we can help and create a support plan that fits you and your life exactly. Our home care workers can help you with everyday tasks, like getting up, washing and personal hygiene and bedtime routines. We can also help with things like shopping, making a meal, laundry and cleaning.
We believe that being involved in your local community contributes to your general health and well-being, so we can support you to do this in ways including:
- Accompanying you to attend religious services or social events
- Taking part in activities you’re interested in
- Meeting family and friends
- Staying in touch via letter or email
- Collecting prescriptions
We can also help you to manage your medication routine, manage your money and help you get used to being at home again after you have been in hospital. Our services are designed to suit the individual that you are, from short-term support following an illness or stay in hospital, to long-term support, for as long as you need.
