Positive Steps Flexi Care Service

Positive-Steps-Flexi-Care

Positive Steps over the last year have listened to the views and concerns of current Service Users and the wider community, as regards the Care and Support provided to them at present.

One of the key concerns are, the time that people were being assisted to bed and how they could not attend evening activities to socialise because they had NO support to do so.

This is when Positive Steps FLEXI CARE was developed, a not for profit service based on the  needs of the individual. The main service we offer is our Twilight Assistance Service, between the hours of 8pm – 2am, to enable an individual to be assisted to social events or have a later call from a trained Carer to assist them to bed at a time they wish.

If you are already receiving Care and are unhappy with the times it is provided, speak with your Local Social Work Department (Dundee City Council) or Positive Steps directly. We can support you to have this reviewed. Through Self Directed Support “You Decide When and How”, your Care should be received, specific to your individual needs.

Positive Steps FLEXI CARE teams, can help with all aspects of planning your Care. Through Self Directed Support you can choose who, how and when you receive the support you need to reach your full potential.

To find out more about how we could help you, please call us on the number listed above, we are only too happy to help.
