Lifetime Care & Support
Dolleina are an approved service provider offering attendant care services on behalf of the Lifetime Care & Support Scheme and Authority. We have an established track record in working with LTCS participants to successfully accomplish a transition from the rehab setting back to a home setting.
We are experienced in meeting care requirements for all LTCS participants including high physical needs and traumatic brain injury. We have successfully implemented very large programmes with service input requirements exceeding 24 service hours per day for a single client.
Participant input into the design of the service is very important to us. It helps that we understand what is important to participants including culture, beliefs and values. This includes understanding how you would like to be known and greeted, your preferred times for receiving service, being involved in the recruitment process, selection and training of workers.
Dolleina provide an after-hours service for participants needing to contact us outside normal business hours regarding service arrangements. Each office manages an on-call service so you will most likely already have spoken to the out of hours contact person during your everyday contact with our offices.
