About SLR Care, Shrewsbury, Shropshire
We are a home care company based in Atcham, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, aiming to deliver exceptional standards of care at all times.
Fully registered with the Care Quality Commission, SLR Care was founded in November in 2014 by company Owner and head carer Sarah Ritchie.
The inspiration behind SLR Care
Sarah has worked in the care industry in one form or another for the last 18 years.
She was inspired to start SLR Care because she saw the lack of high quality care and staff continuity and she needed to know that her family members would be cared for to the same exceptional standards that she would deliver herself.
Sarah strives to ensure that all of her service users feel like a respected and valued human being.
Our Mission Statement
To offer first class care, We will employ and continually train the highest quality of staff, who share our passion to preserve the dignity, privacy and independence of everyone in our care.
Our care packages are planned and designed for each individual client. This encompasses the belief that every person is unique and we pride ourselves on this understanding of our service users. It ensures that their individual needs are not only met but are maintained and exceeded.
Health Care Support
We can provide many levels of care, from a 15-minute pop-in call to bring you a daily paper, to full 24-hour care. It all depends on your individual circumstances and requirements.
With our experience delivering expert care in the home, we know that even a brief visit to carry out your personal tasks is not something to be rushed.
We strongly believe there should be no pressure to rush the tasks of daily living and feel this is especially important for the elderly or individuals with physical disabilities, where maintaining safety in their environment is paramount. We don’t want to rush our carers and we don’t want our carers to rush you.
During our visits, our care staff can offer support with not only personal care but also by providing company and conversation. We feel passionate about building strong, trusting relationships and believe this can only be achieved by investing time rather than delivering short bursts of care.
If you are simply seeking the reassurance of having someone visit your home to check you have everything that you need, we offer a flexible service with tailored visit-lengths which can be adapted to suit your needs. This can be with a carer visiting 2 or 3 times per week instead of daily, or using their time to help you with other duties such as domestic chores or trips to the community, this ensures you get the most from your time with your carer and a care plan than works for you.
Our carers are all trained to the highest possible standard in this aspect of care. It is very important that when delivering health care support there is no room for error, from maintaining a balanced diet to pressure area care and everything in between. We provide medication assistance and prescription collection, PEG feeding and PEG medication, feeding assistance, laundry assistance, bed changing, light domestic duties, mobility support, OT and district nurse referrals and many more services. We will plan and design our service to meet your needs.
