At the Occupational Centre we put planning focused on each person with learning difficulties at the centre of the way we work. This new system was agreed in 2013 and first implemented in 2014 in a project we call the “New Day Care Model”.
We encourage the conditions necessary for achieving improvements in all areas of a person’s welfare and quality of life with their active participation, based on respect for their dignity and rights, their interests and preferences. Every person benefiting from the service has a life and care plan designed as a tool for action. This is the result of conversations between the user, their family, the community around them and professionals from various services. Diversity and variety among service users is taken into account with flexible, multidisciplinary, personalised care adapted to the person, with services designed around their individual needs. Everyone’s personal schedule of weekly activities, based on their strengths or competencies, is drawn up with the help of all elements of the service.
Our work is not limited to looking after people’s needs. Instead we promote and facilitate projects to achieve the happiness of all of the people cared for at our centre. Their wishes and desires are the driving force for them to achieve a fulfilling life.
In each of the Occupational Centre’s services:
Resources are adapted to the new care structure in line with the New Day Care Model, adapted to the Occupational Centre, incorporating the necessary improvements and changes.
The tools and resources making self-management and self-determination easier for people with learning difficulties are adapted
A proposal for rehabilitation and training activities suited to the developing needs of the service users is planned
Spaces are created to allow them to express their needs, personal interests, hopes and desires
