Making a difference in your Community

Personalisation has the potential to deliver independent living for many elderly and vulnerable people and with the help and expertise of ICare we can enable them to achieve that potential.

Through a team of qualified and extremely well motivated staff, ICare provide a comprehensive range of care and support services throughout every sector of the social care market including:

  • Home Care
  • Community Meals
  • Residential Care
  • Extra Care

We work alongside health professionals, social services teams and voluntary organisations, providing them and their service users with support, assistance and expertise. Today, as the power to choose and purchase services moves from local authorities to the Service Users, ICare are well placed to ensure people have the assistance to manage these changes effectively.

We have developed new services and have trained staff to help ease our customers transition into the new and often confusing market that is Personalisation. We will ensure service users make the most of their personal budgets through well planned, flexible and cost effective services, tailored to meet their individual requirements. The Personalisation agenda supports our ambition to deliver high quality services to people in a wide range of settings. If you would like to find out more about our services and how they can help you and your clients, please call us on 01253 508277.

A home with dignity

Comfort, security and support for older adults

ICare residential homes provide so much more than comfortable, secure accommodation. Here it is our aim to raise the quality of life for older adults in a
comfortable, secure and friendly environment. We provide companionship for those who feel isolated, 24 hour help for those struggling to cope, and for many others, the vital support and encouragement to help them maintain a enjoyable lifestyle.

We adhere to the Standards for Residential Care Homes set out by the DHSSPS, caring about every detail of residents lives including health, diet, exercise, hobbies and social activities. And you may be surprised how little our high standards cost, with many residents receiving complete funding from their Local Authority.

We believe that the professionalism of our staff and the relationship they have with residents is key to creating a happy and homely environment. All staff have an individual training plan and all are regularly reviewed and assessed, to ensure they are capable of delivering the standards of care and support we believe older people deserve.

Social workers need help too

The new reality of Personalisation poses many challenges, not least for the Social Worker

Today, everyone involved in social care; service users, commissioners and providers have an important role to play in the availability, delivery and supply of services, and additionally to ensure the services purchased are not only appropriate but also an effective and efficient use of resources.

For over 12 months, we at ICare have been preparing for the implementation of Personalisation. Our staff have received additional training to further develop person-centred skills and values. We have also introduced new services that allow for creative and flexible ways of working to meet service user needs. We believe it is vital that providers and commissioners work together to shape a market of services that reflects the needs and preferences of local people.

To show you how we can help your clients and your service to meet its responsibilities, ICare are holding a series of open days at Links View, the companys Extra Care development in St. Annes. We will shortly be publishing details of these open days in the local press, direct to your team by post and over the internet, but in the meantime if you would like more information on either the open days or our services, please us on 01253 521678

A meal delivered from ICare means so much more than delicious, wholesome food. You get the reassurance of a regular nutritiously balanced hot or frozen meal seven days a week.

You get peace of mind in the knowledge that a familiar, friendly driver is visiting, taking their time to ensure the well-being of every customer. You get the widest choice of tasty, easy to prepare meals and puddings, delivered free, at a time that is convenient to you. You also get great value. From just 3.50 for a satisfying meal, which includes a tempting dessert, you wont find better value anywhere. For further information, or to arrange a delivery, please call us on: 0845 604 1125

Its the meals service that also cares

At ICare youll find the quality of our service every bit as good and as satisfying as the food.

People look forward to our meals, not just for the taste, but also for the friendly, reliable local delivery service. Our staff have all been carefully selected by us for their manner and suitability. Much more than drivers, these friendly faces are a valuable social contact for isolated and vulnerable people. Trained and experienced in adult care-awareness they keep a constant eye on the welfare of our customers and we are proud of the many tributes they receive from service users. As many of our customers tell us, its not just the meals but the service that cant be beaten
