Shaping Empowered Lives
In Social Care, we’re proud to be changing the face of support for people with Intellectual Disability and/or Autism, in Ireland. Proud to be offering families progressive solutions which focus on empowerment of our service users, rather than limiting their experiences of life.
Changing the Way You Think About Care
We can’t tell you that choosing professional care for a loved one is an easy decision to make but in Social Care we offer you a specialist service that will change the way you think about ‘care’. It’s how we care that has set us apart from the more traditional services offered.
How We’re Different
360 Degree Personal Planning
The care we provide focuses solely on each individual and the full circle of support they need. Through a meaningful person-centred and bespoke approach, our in-house multi-disciplinary team (Clinical Psychologist, Occupational Therapist, Positive Behaviour Therapist) develops a highly personalised Support Plan, Health Action Plan and Positive Behaviour Support Plan for each individual, based on their strengths and challenges, potential and promise, interests and individual goals.

Positive Risk Assessment:
Shaping Empowered Lives
Our ethos of empowerment and enablement informs everything we do in Social Care. Through carrying out careful, professional, Positive Risk Analyses, we look at how we can help individuals enjoy doing the things they want to do, and reach their potential – while managing the risk. We don’t give up – we keep trying to see what is possible and make things happen. It’s this kind of inclusiveness and creative approach to care that safely breaks down barriers.
Our Own Residences
We own our own residential homes so have complete control as to how they are developed and run. From mealtimes to fun times and chores – they offer a healthy, well-rounded family lifestyle.
We work hard to partner with your family at every level, so you always feel involved and connected. We provide valuable training programmes, family forums where you can meet the team and informal, open visiting as far as possible.
Wherever possible, Social Care is very much OF the community, and each of our residential homes is well-integrated in its local area. We participate in the community, we shop there, we use the facilities and we give back wherever we can.
As well as the mandatory industry training, we have developed our own bespoke training packages, including: Company and HR Induction, Garda Vetting, Children First, SOVA, Infection Prevention and Control, PMH, First Aid, Food Hygiene HACCP, SAMs, Epilepsy, Fire Safety, MAPA and Autism Training.
Where Autism is concerned, Support Workers also take part in practical workshops to learn specific skills. These include how to adapt an environment for a child with sensory needs and the development of specific aids such as visual schedules and alternative communication systems.
We also assist all team members to constantly develop their skills – making both time and funding available to them.
A key Resilience differentiation is that our Outreach staff receive the same training as our Residential Care staff – maintaining exceptional high standards of support across the board.
