About Values in Care
Values in Care provides specialist medium- to long-term 24-hour supported accommodation for adults with complex learning disabilities and challenging needs. Our mission is to help residents achieve lifestyles that are both satisfying to themselves and valued by others in society. We specialise in supporting individuals on the Autistic Spectrum, including those with Asperger’s syndrome.
Our staff work around the clock to provide individually tailored support packages of care, enabling our residents to live fulfilling and inclusive lifestyles within local communities. In addition to the full range of both primary and secondary healthcare, we provide physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychology, drama therapy and art therapy as part of the care package where appropriate. We also offer a range of learning programs and qualifications for people with special needs which are accredited by Agored. Click here to read more about the services we provide.
Our accommodation is of very high quality, developed to be homely in appearance while remaining responsive to each individual resident’s needs. Our homes are located in semi-rural and local community settings in South Wales. Click here to read more about each home and view interior and exterior photographs.
Within the grounds of these properties, residents are assisted in participating and being actively involved in the care of farm animals, horticultural work and care of domestic pets. Residents are also able to participate in carpentry and horticultural projects at our purpose built vocational services facility, 'The Hub', which is home to accredited learning programs.
Each of our homes is staffed by enthusiastic, experienced, highly motivated, well-trained and
multi-skilled staff teams, supported by an experienced management team.
The principles underpinning our service are based upon providing a lifestyle for individuals that promotes not just the individual’s wellbeing but also actively supports them in achieving their personal aspirations and goals. A primary focus is to encourage community presence and social inclusion.
Our vocational programmes are established with an emphasis placed on the development of interpersonal skills. We provide support which enables people with special needs to acquire and develop communication, social and life skills in order to maximize their full potential.
Values in Care was formed in 2003 by Geraldine Butler and Tina Donovan, who are both qualified nurses in learning disabilities and who together share more than 50 years’ experience of working with people with learning disabilities. Click here to meet some of our key staff members.
Values in Care have established a City & Guilds approved Training and Assessment Centre that provides sector specific and professional development training to our own staff and a number of external providers in the care sector.
