The Peartree House Community Service is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide care for adults who require personal care.
Our community service offers a personalised approach, building bespoke packages around the individual, working closely with our clients and their loved ones to ensure clients are treated holistically and that all of their care and therapy needs are met. Our staff are skilled and experienced in managing a range of neurological conditions and specialise in acquired brain injury. We pride ourselves on building trust, providing high standards of care and working as a multi-disciplinary team to achieve excellent outcomes for our clients.
Our key value of working together for a better life is at the heart of every member of our care team.
We believe caring for clients in their own home environment allows individuals to safely remain at home with their families, have access to the community, ensure a good quality of life, and have more choice and control over their lives.
For those in an inpatient setting our team can support early discharge home, which often helps relieve distress, promote independence, and minimise extended inpatient admissions. We provide a full assessment of the client, produce bespoke care plans, maintain high standards of documentation using the Nourish system, and ensure training and support for the care team to achieve these goals. We ensure ‘best-fit staff’ with the required skills and experience are provided for the client.
We can provide care and support from a few hours to 24 hours a day with flexible working to meet the needs of the client, or a complete live-in package.
The role of our care team can include:
- Personal care such as washing and dressing, toileting, and pad changes.
- Maintaining care of skin including wound care and ensuring preventative measures.
