We support Asperger's and high-functioning autistic clients, from the age of 14 upwards, who want care in their own home.
We specialise in transitioning teenagers and young people.
We WANT to keep our clients at home, in their own community.
Edge delivers high quality, holistic care and support, to clients who have a diagnosis of autism and want to design their own care package. We encourage clients to make an informed choice and have greater independence and control, in choosing their support. We also encourage clients to become partners in their own care, decide on the outcomes they want, in a bespoke service, offered in their own home.
It is of the UTMOST importance to be able to tailor BESPOKE care packages for clients, with differing needs. We do not believe that 'one size fits all'.
Whether it be decisions about leaving school, employment, socialisation, re-connecting with family, learning a new skill, enhancing a current skill or living independently we CAN help. We promote physical activity on an outreach basis and encourage participation in new activities.
We specialise in assisting clients to achieve their dream of independent living. Our goal is to provide our clients with life skills and a re-integration back into their community, as well as enhancing and supporting their hobbies, skills and talents.
Our staff group is made up of Team Leaders and Senior and Junior Support Workers. We are edgier because ALL of our team have that something extra - surfers, musicians, skate boarders, cooks, snow boarders, personal trainers, hikers, swimmers, wake-boarders and yoga practitioners, to name a few.
We are mindful, 'chilled-out' professionals, who specialise in thinking outside the box, about autism. We strive to support our clients and their families to reach their dreams. We go the extra mile.
We pride ourselves on being UNIQUE and BESPOKE. We aim to support WELLNESS, by being CREATIVE, improving PHYSICAL and MENTAL HEALTH, advising on NUTRITION and providing EDUCATION, in both a formal and a non-formal setting. We aim to improve SOCIAL INCLUSION and support a re-introduction to COMMUNITY. We also support clients and families in working towards FAMILY HEALING. We are HOLISTIC and our staff team have the highest levels of INTEGRITY. We treat everybody with DIGNITY and RESPECT and specialise in supporting people, to reach their FULL POTENTIAL.
We are always on the cutting EDGE of current thinking and we stay up to date, we are FLEXIBLE and DYNAMIC and most of all we are RESPONSIVE to our client’s and their families NEEDS.
We work with the whole family to achieve the best outcomes.
