Enabling People to Flourish and ‘Live their Best Lives’

About Us

Saracen Care is a supported living provider, offering outstanding care and support services to adults with a health or social care need.

We specialise in bespoke support packages, developing specific solutions and opportunities for everyone. Our support is high quality and personalised, provided in supported accommodation or people’s own homes.

Our services are commissioned by local authorities and the NHS and we cover the localities of Gloucester, Cheltenham and Swindon

 

Staff communication is excellent. Whenever I need information, you are more than accommodating and very knowledgeable. Every effort has been made to ensure the person we support has a stable team of people around her that respect her.

What We Believe

At Saracen Care we believe it’s all about the Individual. We work to deliver a service that’s tailor made to assist people to live independent and fulfilled lives – their best life. We believe in empowerment and maximising an Individual’s potential; providing choice; increasing independence; ensuring a safe and secure setting; improving health; promoting wellbeing and facilitating identity and community inclusion.

We also believe that our Care and Support staff are the most important people in our Team, where communication is at the heart of our operations. A staff team that is listened to, included, developed and valued is fundamental to what we do.

We want to support people to live their best lives, through what they are able to do for themselves and as part of their community. We advocate the principles of autonomy, choice, self-determination, freedom and responsibility which are the foundations of being person centred and taking a strengths based approach – ‘what’s strong, rather than what’s wrong.’

Our Values

Values are intrinsic and fundamental to our service, embedded in everything we do from Recruitment to Corporate Governance.

  • To treat people as we would wish to be treated ourselves;
  • To work hard to deliver a bespoke service through choice and empowerment;
  • To carefully select and manage our staff so they provide safe, quality support via person centred care.

Our Vision

For Saracen Care to be recognised as the provider and employer of choice for health and social care in our Gloucestershire and Swindon localities.

Our Mission

To provide personalised, quality-led supported living care services to vulnerable adults.

Our Approach

We advocate a VIPs approach to Person Centred Care:

A Value base that asserts the absolute value of every person and is without discrimination – “Do our actions show that we respect and value this person?”

An Individualised approach, recognising an individual’s assets – “Are we treating this person as a unique individual, understanding and building on their strengths?”

Seeing the world from the Perspective of the individual – “Are we putting ourselves in their shoes to understand how our actions or situations are being interpreted and felt?”

Providing a Social environment that supports wellbeing – “Do our actions help this person to feel socially confident and a part of their community?”

When rebranding, our staff and people we support were part of the idea behind the new logo. We wanted to represent that we are a family, a community.

As you can see, the goodie bags we sent out went down a treat.

James was gifted a bag as not only does he make... us laugh daily, but he has been enjoying participating in events with us representing Saracen Care🏠
