The KorCare Difference

After relocation, client’s needs very soon become evident and we try very hard to develop surroundings and activities which satisfy those needs.

KorCare Ltd provides Korsakoff’s Care and endeavours to tailor its services and facilities totally towards that end. Our care is qualified, holistic, completely flexible and tailored to fit the client.

Complete Support

We give complete and comprehensive support.

Our policy is to keep a highly flexible approach towards Care provision. This means that it is our intention to provide the utmost support to both the client and the placement agency. This is seen to work very effectively with the younger clients (40-65) suffering from Korsakoff’s.

Client Care…

There are always day to day problems and these are initially counselled with staff.

Family contact is encouraged if required by the client. Members of client’s families are always welcome to visit clients, stay for lunch, seek advice.

Appointments with hospitals, doctors, consultants, dentists etc are arranged and managed by senior staff . Clients will be reminded if necessary of impending appointments/reviews and accompanied should help be needed.

A monitored dosage medication regime is in operation – we manage all medication within the home.

Helping Our Clients Achieve Goals…

Where necessary, we provide complete cash management and private banking support, helping clients budget their money to provide for the things that they want, and the goals that they want to achieve.

Korsakoff’s Special Care allows a provision for ‘One to one’ care – designated staff time weekly for each individual Korsakoff’s client. We do provide a range of therapy with qualified therapists, often as part of the initial contract and at no cost to the placement agency.

Trips to shops, local towns, or places of interest can be carried out with a member of staff, we have small group outings, and with the help of cash management often make holidays at home or abroad happen.

KorCare Ltd is a dry house i.e. alcohol is not permitted.
