Highly Qualified to Provide Care & Support to Families with Children
We understand the challenges being a parent can bring, and getting assistance can be a good thing. You need someone you can trust, someone who knows your child’s unique needs, and someone your family can rely on when your child requires support. Our Health Care Assistance are highly qualified to provide in-home care and support to families with children.
Our team have dealt with challenging behaviour, autism spectrum disorders, severe health needs, physical limitations, and sensory impairment in the past. We can provide both short-term, and long-term care.
Celebrating What Makes Your Child Unique
With every child welcomed into the world comes an exciting time for parents. Each child is unique and some may need a little extra support. Our support workers are highly trained and experienced and have helped families to manage physical, behavioural and learning needs.
Every support worker for children understands the need for safety, discretion and compassion. We ensure our team has the right training and are referenced and vetted to the highest standard. This is to give you complete peace of mind when you work with us.
Developing Helpful Routines
Once we get to know you and your child better, we can help to develop routines to suit their needs. This offers support for children who need routine as they grow and develop, but also offers support for parents. While each support worker is there for your child, they can also make helpful suggestions or listen to your concerns.
We know every child or young person is different, so we create person-centred care plans. These take into account their physical and emotional needs as well as their interests and preferences and are updated regularly.
Supporting Physical Health
Support services for young people come in a range of forms. Your child may suffer from a physical disability that limits their mobility and what they can do for themselves. One of our support workers will help them as they grow and develop.
This might mean taking your child to physiotherapy and appointments to manage their condition, but it can also give you some much-needed rest knowing they are in safe hands. We can help look at adjustments for your home that will make it easier for them to be independent.
Supporting mental health
Growing up can be difficult for anyone. If you have a mental health condition or learning difficulties, the changes in your life can have an even greater emotional impact. It is important to guide young people and keep them feeling happy and fulfilled.
We offer support for young people no matter their condition. Our support workers can help them track and understand their emotions and provide support in school or at home. We can also help you as parents learn how to best support them in daily life as well as in stressful or difficult times.
Bereavement support for children
When a member of the family passes away, children and young people can need help processing their grief. It can be difficult for you as a parent to support them as you are grieving yourself.
There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to losing someone you love. But one of our support workers can bring their past experience to help guide your family through. They can help young people to understand their feelings and manage them in a healthy way, giving them tools they will need later in life as well.
The type of support you will need will depend on your personal circumstances. We can talk you through the options available and provide the right people to support your family.
If you are experienced in social care or have worked with children, you are an ideal candidate as a support worker. Visit our careers page for current openings.
