At ECL Benfleet (Hesten) we specialise in enhancing the lives of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
Many of our customers have mobility restrictions or are wheelchair users, and have healthcare conditions that require medication or medical intervention whilst they are in our care.
Our staff receive the specialist training they need to provide personalised care to the customers they are supporting, examples courses include autism awareness, communication difficulties, sensory awareness, behaviours that challenge, epilepsy, catheter care, diabetes, dysphagia and enteral feeding.
We can provide 1:1 and 2:1 levels of support with the appropriate care plan in place.
We have access to ECL's own in-house clinical team and benefit from their expert guidance in the areas of physiotherapy, occupational support, speech and language, and positive behaviour support. We work closely with the health professionals involved in a customer's care to ensure we are following the optimum care and therapy plans.
We liaise with family members, carers, and social care professionals to ensure that all aspects of a person's life are coordinated and the best they can be.
