More choice in care services

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - More choice in care servicesCare services and opportunities for volunteering in the county have been given a boost, thanks to a deal structured by Lincoln based chartered surveyor Banks Long & Co.

The Gables – period offices in Union Street, Market Rasen – has been let to Focus Ability Support & Care Services.

The move marks an expansion for the Care Quality Commission-registered company, which offers its services to people living in both the Lincoln and West Lindsey areas, including Gainsborough, Market Rasen, Louth and the surrounding villages.

Focus Ability Regional Manager Rachael Wood-Raw said the business, which also has an office in Dunholme, looks after people in their own homes and within the community.

Services provided include everything from personal care to housework, shopping and respite care.

 “We are keen to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding of people living in rural and isolated areas and we have supportive volunteers who work with individuals and their families/carers in their own homes and we can now also offer day centre services withour new premises,”  said Mrs Wood-Raw.

Anybody with a need can get in touch with Focus Ability independently or they may be signposted to its services by health and social care professionals (www.mychoicemycare.org.uk)

“We offer an holistic service with the aim of helping people, ranging from the elderly to people with learning and physical disabilities to live their lives in the way which they want to,” she said.  

“Now we have our Market Rasen centre, we also offer a day centre facility for people – where they can learn new skills and have support to do volunteer work and get involved in other activities including life skills, photography, gardening, complementary therapies and IT.

“This short-term respite care is a service which we would like to expand to overnight stays.”

Banks Long & Co surveyor Jonathan Purkiss said: “We are pleased to have assisted Focus Ability & Care Services with its expansion.  As soon as the business registered its enquiry, we knew that these premises would be ideally suited to its needs.

“Focus Ability & Care Services’ arrival complements the steady growth of the business community in Market Rasen  where regeneration efforts have been supported by its success in winning Mary Portas Pilot funding.”
