Woman, support worker and car
Experienced, qualified, DBS checked and fully insured support and escorted services 

Living with or convalescing from an enduring physical or mental health condition or diagnosis can be frightening, frustrating and even soul destroying. It can begin to feel like there is no point to life, and no hope. Motivation, confidence and self-esteem often become low or cease to exist.

Using my considerable experience, training and knowledge along with coaching and practical techniques we can work together and recover lost, claim new or maintain present skills and abilities, achieving maximum independence and your preferred lifestyle.

I’m very versatile and can work in different environments including home, supported living projects and the community.

Specialist services

Convalescence

Convalescing at home following hospital treatment or an illness can be slow, frustrating and sometimes lonely. Even if clients don’t live alone, relatives and loved ones often have to be away from the home or don’t have time to support effectively. Support and encouragement to consistently undertake therapy programmes prescribed by medical professionals can aid and speed up the recovery process, making it more bearable and reablement achievable.

Mental Health

Evidence suggests there are 5 steps we can take to improve our mental wellbeing. If one gives them a try they may feel happier, more positive and able to get the most from life. The steps are: Connect, Be active, Take notice, Keep learning and Give. We can help individuals work towards using the steps in daily life by providing practical support and encouragement.  Clients diagnosed with a mental health condition often benefit from support to liaise with the Community Mental Health Team, Pharmacy and help to access therapy groups and workshops.

Learning Disabilities/Autism

The proportion of adults aged 18-64 with a learning disability who live in their own home or with their family increased from 59% in 2010-11 to 77.2% in 2017-18.  While the statistics for people with a learning disability gaining freedom autonomy and independence are great some people with learning disabilities still require some level of support. Help to access community facilities, medical services and holiday transport can often be helpful to clients and their relatives.

Older People

Working alongside medical and other agencies our service can make a big difference and help individuals able to stay safely at home or in a minimum support facility longer.
Older clients and relatives particularly benefit from escorted formal and social appointments, shopping and managing correspondence services.

Reviews from our happy customers

Mrs W – Sheffield 5

“When my husband passed away I was very distressed and totally overwhelmed. I’d never managed any of the bills or household issues, my department was home making. Naomi helped me contact all the utility companies and change the account details. She contacted DWP and did all the paperwork with me to claim the right entitlements. I couldn’t have done this without help and reassurance, I don’t understand the systems and I get all flustered and forget what I want to say on the phone”

Mr T – Sheffield 6

“Naomi helped me settle into my new home. We sorted some housing problems with the council and my money and bank accounts out. We’ve been walking, bike riding and on day trips to York and Bakewell. I liked the bus ride and market at Bakewell. She’s a nice person, a good worker, she knows what she’s doing and confident in what she does”

Mrs J - Sheffield 5

“I’ve had 2 knee operations, a fractured pelvis and I’m diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I’m on so much medication I get confused. Naomi orders and collects my prescriptions and sorts all the medication out for me. It’s a load off my mind. She encourages me to do my physiotherapy exercises and helps with shopping. We go to my appointments at the surgery together in the car and she lets my daughters know what the doctor has said. I could take a taxi, but the taxi driver won’t come into the surgery or make me a cup of tea and phone my daughters to tell them what’s happened when we get home, will they? (Mrs J laughed)”

Graham & Tina Hoole Braintree, Essex.

We were delighted to hear that after many years of working within the care sector and in particular with those living with mental health conditions that Naomi has decided to venture out on her own.
We came to know Naomi more than 6 years ago when she was the senior manager in charge of a 13 bed facility in Sheffield ( where my relative is living) Working to enable those with mental health issues achieve quality of life. We have no hesitation in recommending her qualifications, skills, and commitment for those requiring individual support.

Together We Can.
