APDA’s Homecare Service enables you to remain in the comfort of your own home, family and community. You have the safety and peace of mind of your own front door and support enabling you to continue to live a full and interesting life.

We provide care for frail, elderly and disabled Asian people, including those with physical, sensory, mental health, learning difficulties and age-related disabilities.

Our services are:

  • User-centered, needs led and co-designed with the you and your family

  • Designed to meet your needs and concerns and the requirements of local authorities

  • Culturally appropriate: our home care workers share your language and customs

  • Accredited with local authorities and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

They:

  • Enable you to continue to live in the community

  • Reduce inappropriate and unnecessary hospitalisation

  • Give equal priority to the needs of your carers, a group that is usually poorly supported.

Unlike many other homecare providers we only provide our support in worthwhile units of time, typically one hour minimum. You have a regular home carer that has time to get to know you and ensure that you receive the support you need.


Reflections thinking on the journey of the completion of the care certificate

The care certificate journey began with three sessions. Each session covered five standards and quizzes and practical knowledge which included basic life support and health and safety.  (All the attendees were graded based on their first aid skills and health and safety).  The attendees were also informed that observation will be taking place at their respective address of visits, which would provide evidence of competence of delivery outstanding care.

The feedback received  from the attendees stated that they had enjoyed attending the in house sessions completing  the care certificate  workbook and taking active part during the drop in sessions as information was being paraphrased and summarized and it led to an increase in building the theory and practical aspects of the care that was being delivered.
