Crossroads Worcestershire is committed to providing high quality personalised care giving services, meeting both the needs of home carers and the people they care for. As a charity all of our resources are used to provide services and to train staff, ensuring that we meet your needs in the way that you decide.
Crossroads Care Worcestershire supports carers of adults with disabilities, mental health problems or people who are elderly and frail. We only employ trained care support staff with the skills to help and support both the home carer and those they care for, enabling people to remain living in their own homes for as long and as independently as possible.
As a registered charity we operate on a “not-for-profit” basis. Our home care services can be purchased through direct payments, personalised budgets, self funding or provided through services commissioned by Social Services or the local NHS. Many of our services are free at the point of delivery if Social Service or the NHS have asked us to assist.
Crossroads Care –The People Carers Turn To
A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends whose health or wellbeing could suffer without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health problems.
Many people are carers - parents, children, husbands and wives, even friends and neighbours and although it can be immensely rewarding it can often be very difficult and sometimes extremely stressful.
