Support at home plus
SAH+ is a Care Quality Commission CQC registered specialist domiciliary service for people living with dementia.
It is a trusted and reliable service provided by support workers who are fully trained in dementia care.
- Help with all aspects of personal care and support
- Assistance with medication
- Food preparation and support with eating
- Assistance with household tasks
- Small, permanently allocated staff teams to ensure continuity and trust.
This service can be provided Monday – Sunday 7:00am – 10:00pm and we can also offer waking nights upon request.
We understand that continuity and reliability are very important to people living with dementia so our staff work in small teams to ensure that only ‘familiar faces’ will provide services.
We keep a detailed care plan on every service user to ensure that all of their needs are noted and met, and review these regularly.
We keep detailed visit records of what has been done on each visit so that carers and families can be assured that we are meeting people’s needs.
We like to ‘work with’ people to help them to maintain their skills for as long as possible and to give them time so that they are not hurried, so minimum visit times are an hour.
We take an enabling approach in this service, encouraging and supporting people to do as much for themselves as possible. We won’t just take over but be responsive to the individual abilities of the person we are supporting, ensuring they maintain their independence for as long as possible.
We believe in enabling people to make their own choices and staff are skilled at using a patient/encouraging approach to support people to accept help.
As well as full training in all aspects of dementia care, our support staff are fully vetted and checked prior to employment, with on-going DBS checks and training updates throughout their employment with us.
Prices are available upon request.
