Established in Stockport in 1989 Independent Care Agency provides a range of services to help meet the needs of people in their own homes. We refer to the people we help as ‘service users’ or ‘clients’.
Our aim is to provide the highest standard of service in giving practical help to individuals and families. To achieve this Independent Care is guided by the following principles and ideas;
Placing clients at the centre of everything we do
Our decision making is influenced by what is best for our clients. This includes day- to- day choices about practical care but also includes things such as our managers lobbying local and national government to improve their support for social care.
A concern for quality of life
We strive to protect, support and give voice to our clients. We recognise the importance of autonomy and empathy in enabling clients to experience the best possible quality of life.
We understand that everyone is an individual. Our mission is to provide the most personally tailored and high standard of care for our clients.
Supporting our staff
We know that social care is a big responsibility and providing it is hard work, but ultimately rewarding. We feel that creating an environment in which our staff feel supported and valued is the cornerstone to providing the best care possible for our clients.
