Sahara Community Care Services

Sahara seeks to enhance the quality of life for the elderly and for adults and children with disability within the community, especially those in minority communities. Our key purpose is to provide a service which meets the requirements of the service-user as closely as possible, aiming at the provision of an independent lifestyle in adulthood. We match the carers to the service-user's preferences (linguistic, cultural, social, religious, and also as to age and gender), so that the service-user is enabled to live as independently as possible, supported by a support plan which is of their choice. We work within specific support plans which address their needs by setting measurable, achievable and relevant targets which are regularly reviewed internally and with other professionals. There is no limitation on support as long as it is in line with an agreed care package and ongoing support is provided such as visits to gym or swimming pool, ensuring a healthy diet/lifestyle, and accompanying servic users to social, community or leisure activities.

Description

Our key purpose is to provide a service which meets the requirements of the service-user as closely as possible, aiming at the provision of an independent lifestyle in adulthood. We match the carers to the service-user’s preferences (linguistic, cultural, social, religious, and also as to age and gender), so that the service-user is enabled to live as independently as possible, supported by a support plan which is of their choice.

We work within specific support plans which address their needs by setting measurable, achievable and relevant targets which are regularly reviewed internally and with other professionals. A child’s package is normally reviewed every 6 – 8 weeks, as well as in response to changing needs.

We work in line with guidelines set by Early Years to meet the following outcomes: communication and language, physical development, personal social and emotional development, literacy, maths, understanding the world and expressing art and design. The aim is for the service-user to be enabled as far as possible to understand the world and integrate into the society in which they live.

Activities are matched to those provided by service-users’ schools or daycare centres or as indicated by social services in order to maintain the same regime outside those care provision hours.

There is no limitation on support as long as it is in line with agreed care package and ongoing support is provided such as visits to gym or swimming pool, ensuring a healthy diet/lifestyle, and accompanying service-user to social, community or leisure activities.
