LSC Care has evolved from an established support provider which has been delivering a tailored service to disabled students in Leicester for more than 20 years
LSC Care differs from most other care providers in that all of our staff are fully trained Personal Assistants as well as fully trained Note Takers who are able to provide the combined service of Personal Care and Academic Support Assistants. The combined role means continuity for the student as they have the same Personal Assistant throughout the day, and the reassurance that they will receive quality academic support. Personal Assistants can support with transition into student/work life, assistance with organising academic timetables/time management within the workplace and everyday/social living support. All support is tailored to the person’s individual needs and they are consulted at every stage of the planning and delivery of the person centred support package.
Support can be provided for all aspects of daily living including:
- Preparation of nutritional meals and snacks
- Everyday domestic tasks e.g. washing, ironing, cooking, shopping
- Access to recreational activities and events of your choice
- Mobility Support
- Personal care needs
- Dressing and undressing
- Bathing, showering, washing, grooming, shaving and oral hygiene
- Toilet and continence requirements
- Medication requirements and other health related activities
- Manual handling
- Assistance with eating and drinking
Service is available Monday to Friday 8:30 – 6:30 pm (except bank holidays)
Safeguarding Policy and Procedure
The Learning Support Centre Ltd believe in a student led approach. Some students however may be unable to uphold their rights and protect themselves from harm and abuse. They may have greatest dependency and yet be unable to hold services to account for the quality of care they receive. In such cases Learning Support Centre Ltd have particular responsibilities to ensure that those students receive high quality care and that their rights are upheld, including their right to be safe. Safeguarding young people and vulnerable adults is at the centre of this agenda.
There are two fundamental requirements for effective safeguarding in the delivery of personal care and support for young people with learning disabilities:
- To prevent safeguarding incidents arising through the provision of high quality support
- To ensure effective responses where harm or abuse occurs through implementing safeguarding procedure and policy
