How Can Our Services Benefit You?
It’s all about you.
After you contact us, we help tailor a service around you and your family, based on a careful understanding of your individual support needs. You will have your own personal care coordinator as a direct point of contact during the time you require care.
Once we have created your bespoke care package, we match you with a suitable carer that covers your area. We believe in matching carers to clients based on personality and interests. We prioritise comfortable rapport as much as care competencies and qualifications. You may ask to have your carer changed at any time. We are always looking for feedback to ensure compatibility and that you or you loved one are above all, happy.
Mediline Supported Living was established in 1986 to support people with learning disabilities and complex mental health needs to live in the community. Working closely with a number of Health Authorities in the North West of England to provide support to people living in small registered care homes. As demand for our services increased we worked in partnership with the NHS and Local Authorities to develop our services, which now include
Supported Living | Supported Employment | Outreach | Homecare | Training
When we established our company we wanted to improve not only the home lives of disabled people but also their daily activities. We operated a number of day service schemes and went on to promote employment opportunities when we developed our supported employment services offering real job role support to enable people with disabilities to participate fully in the employment market. In 1986 we also set up our work based learning programs which were aimed at young adults entering the work place environment on youth training schemes. Over the years this provision has developed into Apprenticeships which offer a structured program to provide people with the skills needed to do their job well within their chosen profession. We also offer private training to other organisations and individuals.
"Helping people shape their future through personalised support"
We place great emphasis on the safeguarding of vulnerable adults from serious harm and abuse, in all its forms. We have developed our services to ensure 'best practice' and partnership working in relation to safeguarding the people we support.
We have established effective partnerships with key agencies in relation to safeguarding. We have developed very clear policies and processes to deal with any safeguarding concerns that are raised. We promote a culture of openness where everyone feels safe and able to share any concerns. When someone raises a concern relating to safeguarding they are always listened to and taken very seriously.
Our safeguarding polices and processes are communicated to all staff throughout the company. Our induction programme ensures all new employees understand our safeguarding policy in relation to their role. Our Board of Directors are fully committed to ensuring that our safeguarding polices and processes are put into practice and we have established monitoring systems to make sure this happens. The Board of Directors receive regular reports on all safeguarding allegations or incidents and ensures any action required to improve our policies and processes is taken.
Mediline Supported Living is a customer focused organisation that is committed to providing high quality, person centred services. We are always looking at how we can do things better because it is really important to us that we get our services right for the people who matter the most and they are the people we support.
We place great emphasis on seeking the views of our staff, customers and other partners. We encourage feedback and will take action if needed to deliver improvements to our systems and staff training to increase customer satisfaction.
We have effective quality management systems in place which have been accredited by the International Standards Organisation. You can read our Quality Statement which sets out our approach to achieving high quality standards across our company. This statement is our quality promise to our customers.
What Are Our Support Workers Like?
Our carers and nurses have built up a fantastic reputation for their high standards in care and support.
Before working with us and regardless of their previous experience or qualifications, all our staff are thoroughly assessed to make sure that they meet our high standards, which reflect those set out by our Regulator, the Care Quality Commission. We are also committed to the continuous professional development of our team and provide training and support to all staff.
The end result is that you can be assured that you have someone coming into the home of those being cared for who is highly professional, reliable, safe, well trained and from diverse backgrounds to meet cultural needs.
