Sources of funding

There are several sources of funds for practical support and help with day-to-day tasks including state funded support, or private care facilities. The funding sources are intended to help the person with disability to acquire special equipment, adaptations to a home and  for home care visits to help with things such as personal care, shopping, cleaning and for recreational purposes.

The first step is to contact the social services at the local council to arrange a health and social care assessment in finding home support for a disabled person. There will be a visit from a social worker and occupational therapist who will state what the disabled person is entitled to and provide a written care  assessment and support plan.

There is a direct payments scheme, where the person with disability can access and manage funding for services including employing personal assistant or carer rather than relying on the local council to arrange it. This way, the disabled person has  more control over the care services and equipment that the disabled person is able to receive.

Our dedicated healthcare assistants and nurses are well trained and experienced in supporting people of all age with different physical and learning disabilities. The care and nursing staff adopt person-centred and innovative approaches to help individuals with learning and physical disabilities to reach their potential.

Recommendations

Below are a selection of testimonials and recommendation given by our clients.

I was quite sceptical  about choosing Verity Healthcare but they have been superb. The carer arrives on time with a smile very single day. She checks how I’m doing and always finds out what I want to do next. She listens to me. I have found an excellent service. I promised I will recommend the company to others and I have already done”. – Mrs D. Light, London

 

I live with my dad who has been looked after excellently for the past 4 years.  Since we moved over to Verity Healthcare, my dad has received support from the same carers over this period. They are professionals and take their work seriously. Through their support  my dad had recuperated well. The service is very flexible and the Care Managers are brilliant. They are well educated in the field and conduct assessments and reviews and ensure that the staff are well trained to complete different tasks no matter how small or big they may seem. I commend the team for their dedication and hardwork”  – P. Hayden.
