Our aim is for all of our service users to experience a happy, fulfilled life and to develop and maintain their highest level of independence. The needs of each individual service user are our priority and we offer opportunities to acquire new skills and build upon existing abilities. Our team of fully trained staff support each individual to progress and move on to more independent living. We see ourselves as a stepping stone to the future. That is why we developed Person Centred Independence Plan (PCIP). PCIP is a goal oriented approach to promote service users' independence. The set goals that govern PCIP are developed through a meeting with service user and LCS staff or Best Interest meeting with the service user social workers, occupational therapist and families.
They key areas PCIP focuses on are:
Personal care in PCIP is built completely around the service users’ individual needs and personal routines. During initial assessments a care plan is produced which will outline goals which the service needs. These may include support with personal hygiene, keeping the room tidy, oral hygiene etc.
