Locorum Care Services believes in person centered care which forms the core of the service we provide and which our staff are committed to. Our primary aim is to provide care and support which actively encourages the reablement of clients, working along side them and their representatives whilst;
- Encouraging participation which is asset based, co-produced in formulating their care places plans, and
- Enable the retention of independence for as long as possible.
- Delivering a service of the highest quality that will improve and sustain the client’s overall quality of life and wellbeing.
- Meeting the needs of individuals from diverse communities in Kirklees, and ensures that the service is delivered flexibly, attentively and in a non-discriminatory fashion, while respecting client’s right to independence, privacy, dignity, fulfillment, and the rights to make informed choices.
- Ensuring that needs and values are respected in matters of religion, culture, race or ethnic origin, sexuality and sexual orientation, political affiliation, marital status, parenthood and disabilities or impairments.
Our approach is built on creating links with communities which over time that enriches the care provided across the health and social care system. We achieve this by:
- Establishing links with the voluntary and community sector to promote volunteering opportunities, social activities, training and awareness of issues facing certain communities and the potential for them to personally make a difference.
- Developing and supporting staff and volunteers so that they grow in confidence as valued and productive employees within LCS
- Promoting our services sensitively in communities for whom seeking external support may not conform to traditional norms and practices.
- Working in partnership with unpaid Carers, their families and wider support networks to improve the potential for clients to remain in their own home for as long as possible.
- Providing training for unpaid carers and other family members so that they may be better prepared to support clients, whilst managing their own health and wellbeing. E.g. moving and handling, diet and nutrition.
- Creating a pool of potential careworkers who recognise the employment potential within LCS and the wider health and social care sector.
