Mindful Care & Support is a care and support agency. Our mission statement is simple, and it is that we will deliver a high quality and affordable strengths led reablement based service, comprising care and support for adults in the comfort of their own homes, in and around Southampton and the Hampshire area.
We believe that the elderly have a right to remain independent with help and support in their own homes, using their existing skills to assist them in day to day living - enjoying themselves and continuing their passions and interests.
Our service has an ethos which states that the care and support will be delivered based on an individual’s strengths, which along with a holistic person-centred approach will ensure the care and/or support packages we deliver are bespoke and specific to the individual.
We aim to deliver our service to individuals with the addition of maintaining or improving skills for independence and wellbeing. We do this by working towards an outcome that draws on that person’s strengths and assets, to enable them to stay in the environments they want i.e. their homes, for as long as possible.
Our strengths-based approach is based upon the values that people hold that shape and influence their daily lives. Through this approach we hope to understand and endorse the individual. We make sure to also not focus on an individual’s problems or deficits, but instead draw attention to an individual’s abilities, talents and resources.
The service will initially provide a consultation assessment service with the customer, which will run alongside their existing care package/plans, if these are available. This will help us to understand and determine the level of care and support required. We will be actively involved throughout an individual’s plan with us, in consulting with them regarding what other services are out there, and to develop and improve access to their communities.
With the ever-changing services that are in our communities, we find ourselves with an abundance of choice. For us to develop signposting with our clients, it is important to help them understand and to be aware of the services on offer. Encouraging and empowering individuals to access these services has many benefits. Not only will it help towards the prevention of social isolation and the issues this causes, but it also helps to widen the knowledge a person has regarding the many services out there to support them with any health and mental well-being needs they may require.
