What is Quality of Life?

The understanding that an individual’s well-being is met at the intersection of their physical, emotional, and social needs.

What is Self-Efficacy?

A person’s belief in their capability to succeed in reaching a specific goal.

About Us

At Futures Care, we strive to achieve the best quality of life for all those in our care. This means taking a holistic view of all of a person’s care needs, understanding that the best care is only possible when we consider the scope of their personal requirements. This means that we treat everyone as an individual.

With over 40 years of collective experience in the Health & Social Care Field, providing for people with a range of complex support needs, our highly-trained staff, including our qualified nurses, managers and behavioural analysts, understand that no two people are the same. Our tailor-made care packages ensure that our clients are at heart of our decision-making process.

Through delivering excellent Person-Centred care, our teams are dedicated in the promotion of the individual’s Self-Efficacy. Self-Efficacy can mean that the person is confident in their ability to learn new skills, whether that is increasing motor function, attending a college course or ironing a shirt. Self-Efficacy can mean that the person is confident in their ability to live a normal life, whether that be seeing friends and family or relaxing in the comfort of their own home. Self-Efficacy can mean that the person is confident in knowing that they are safe in the care that we provide.

Who We Care For

We pride ourselves on our ability to provide excellent quality care for a wide range of conditions and disabilities.

Our experience in caring for those who require Clinical Care, such as those living with an Acquired Brian Injury (ABI) or neurodegenerative conditions such as Huntington’s and Multiple Sclerosis (MS), as well as those with Learning Disability or Mental Health Conditions, is testament to our capacity to deliver the best care regardless of the disability.

This is achieved through our commitment to training. All of our staff undergo our mandatory training programme, which is updated and reviewed regularly to ensure it is compliant with the Care Quality Commission’s standards of excellent care. Understanding that no two people receiving care are the same, subsequent Person-Specific and Specialised Training is provided as required.
