Paula Integrated Care

Services

Our co-ordinated and person-centred approach envisages a relationship of mutuality between the services we provide and clients, at all stages of a service’s life. It recognises that all parties have vital contributions to make to improve the quality of life for people and communities. This includes Health service providers, Family and friends, Local authority, Community forums that support clients, Police, Faith groups and Local/National Charities.

This coordinated approach means that clients will have an equal say, alongside health care professionals and other key partners in co-designing a system that meets their needs. We believe that together we will improve outcomes for clients and make sure that they get the support they need at the right time and in the right place. 

Paula Integrated Care Limited will start by ensuring the engagement of all parties that can contribute to the development of a co-production network.

This will be achieved by

a) Identifying and considering people who are directly affected by the service, now and in the future and to adopt a wider community approach.

b) Considering people who may have a valuable role to play going forward as well as people who are currently involved in the lives of clients. This includes people who have a high interest in what is being taken forward but have a low amount of power in the decision-making process. This may include families and friends

Details of Services

Mental health

We provide domiciliary care and assistance to people with learning disabilities or mental health problems in the long and short term. There are several ways we can support an adult inside their own home, either with some practical household tasks, handling their money and independent living skills that help them maintain their independence within their home. Living independently isn’t always easy, and often finding or sustaining a tenancy can be a real challenge. We can help individuals start, or keep, an independent life in a place they can call home.

Live in care

In comparison to residential homes, live-in care can be more affordable than people perceive, especially when couples are looked after together. Rather than being charged twice, it’s merely a slight increase in cost.

Most important of all, carers are on hand to help clients enjoy some of their favourite things in life. With no timetables or rigidity in the day to day care, every day can be planned differently, offering a genuine sense of dignity, independence and peace of mind. Benefits of Live-in care involves
