Fortis Care’s main objective is to deliver tailored support for each individual we care for based on their needs and wants which enables them to live as independently as possible within their own homes, immersing themselves into the local community. Our support is focused on these areas.
We support them to meet with friends and family whilst developing new relationships and help them access community facilities such as leisure centres and social groups and social events such as holidays, concerts and key areas of interest.
We help them make choices as to who supports them and how, whilst encouraging them to learn and develop independent living skills such as cooking, money management and use of public transport.
We support them in their daily budget and bill management, their day-to-day household tasks. We also source education and/or employment opportunities aswell as souring the appropriate housing that satisfies the needs of the individual.
Moving to a new house can be an exciting yet daunting experience which is why our transition planning is designed to minimise everyone’s anxieties and ensure a smooth transition into a new setting. We work closely with an individual and those involved in their care to develop a personalised plan that supports them in their move and settling into their new home. This planning aims to help the people we support to make independent choices by clearly describing their wishes, aspirations and addressing any fears or concerns they may have about moving to a new setting.
Bring together all the people around them to help and plan for future, this includes friends and family as well as any professionals involved in your care and support
Settle into a new house to become a place they can call home
