At Cristal Care we actively promote people to develop their daily living skills as part of our learning and development pathway. Gaining daily living skills is one of the most important things any individual can do to develop further independence and reliance on staff support.
A well-developed skill which is learnt over time by practising helps us to improve further in that area. It helps the person to achieve their goals, gives confidence, and gives motivation for working that particular area too. For individuals who have future aspirations to live more independently these learnt skills through our approach enable the individual to achieve that.
We assess what peoples strengths and areas that the individual would like to develop their skills and use support planning for the team to provide a consistent approach with this. Our residents have been doing fantastic in developing their skills and talents.
