Creative Care - Transforming their service with I•ROC,
10/05/2017

A new care provider says that I•ROC is the innovative approach to support that could help them transform life for some of Birmingham’s most vulnerable people.
 
Creative Care Support Solutions was set up by social professionals Gerard Dunnigan and Jeanette Shiel to support the elderly and people with disabilities to live as independently as possible in the community.
 
The organisation joins others in Spain, the Netherlands, Australia, China, Finland, the Czech Republic, and New Jersey in the USA who are now using the tools, which were developed in Scotland by practitioners and people with lived experience of mental ill health.
 
The holistic approach of I•ROC wellbeing will support Creative Care to provide person-centred care. It also helps practitioners to record the positive impact they are having on the lives of the people who use services.

Gerard Dunnigan from Creative Care said:

Our philosophy is ‘Your Life, Your Way’. We want to support people to lead the life that they wish for, as independently as possible, in the communities where they live. This includes all aspects of personal care, including support in social, education and leisure activities.

I•ROC wellbeing fits exactly with our ethos. As soon as we saw it, we knew it would improve the support we provide. We really think it will help transform people’s lives.
