People are at the heart of County Care Group. We consider our family to be made up of both the team members and the individuals using our services.

 

Our Community Support Workers are supported by an experienced management team, across a range of disciplines. All of our work is delivered with compassion and sensitivity.

We recognise each of our Customers to be their own person, with individual needs, wishes and aspirations. Our person-centred approach accommodates individual needs with tailor made care plans that start in the areas they are most interested in, and together we find a way to help them to help themselves, and become active members of their community.

Plan it buy it cook it.png

Exactly as it says on the tin! ‘Plan it, Buy it, Cook it!’ is designed to introduce real world skills in a fun, nurturing environment. We consider the ability to plan and prepare meals to be fundamental to our Customers’ health and wellbeing.

 

We start by choosing a recipe and writing all the ingredients on a shopping list, and head to the shops. We then prepare a meal in our Community Hubs kitchen, with a focus on food hygiene and safety. And then the best part: trying out all the tasty treats!
