1 to 1 Care, Oxfordshire
1 to 1 Care are an independent care provider that have been based at the Notcutts Centre in Nuneham Courtenay since 2004, supporting vulnerable adults in the own homes with compassion, humility and an overarching passion to always act in each Client’s best interest, at all times.
1 to 1 Care strive to support all our Client’s to the highest standards, this is achieved by listening to our Client’s and working with them, liaising with relatives, friends and other Health Care Professionals and only recruiting people who share our values. Clients are closely monitored by the team for changes in mental capacity and physical capabilities and these are reported and monitored for appropriate action. This can involve requesting a GP visit for suspected UTI’s, unexplained changes in behaviour , requesting a District Nurse visit, requesting support from Occupation Therapists usually for additional equipment, calling in the Speech and Language Therapists usually to assist with planning the support for Client’s with a compromised swallow. All the 1 to 1 Care team are our employees (we dont use agency staff), recruited locally often as a result of recommendation, our team are all trained internally to the same high standards, moving through the care certificate followed by additional training modules and regular refresher training. We also operate an extensive system of in the field supervisions of the whole team with unscheduled spot checks at regular intervals.
