What is Responsive Care?
Responsive care is a new way of delivering person centred care to meet the changing needs of the individual.
Responsive care is a ‘Pay as you go’ care package making getting support as and when needed easier, cheaper and far less intrusive helping to keep an individual as independent as possible. As simple as making a phone call or pushing a lifeline we can have a carer attend to help support with personal or domestic care.
How does Responsive Care work?
The whole idea of Responsive care is that it does what it says on the tin. Mi Casa provides care when needed without the constraints of scheduled calls. This way care is delivered when needed most and in an affordable way.
A monthly administration fee is charged with each additional hour of care delivered invoiced at the end of the month giving the individual full control of their budget and support needs. More suited to the individual who has capacity to make decisions regarding their care package.
