To provide support to enable service users of all ages to be cared for in their own homes for as long as they are willing and able to do so or to enable them to return to their own homes from hospital or accommodation elsewhere, thereby promoting real choice in practice between care at home and residential care.  The care provided is to take into account the needs and wishes of the service user and maximise their independence so that they feel confident and safe living in their own home.  Our main objective is to ensure that the physical and emotional welfare of service users being is always of paramount importance.  The term service user is used to encompass both consumers of care services, the person who needs the care and family members / friends who may arrange and / or purchase care on behalf of someone else.  It is our objective to consider the differing and sometimes conflicting needs of the client if the care is to be appropriate.
