What THRIVE is about?

THRIVE exists to provide support to older parent carers of people with learning disabilities. We are here to help you and your loved ones thrive right now and in the future, in a way that you choose.
Our Manager, Bernie had a vision of the future when she first thought “who will care for my son when I am no longer able to”, from this our Thrive service was born, and ever since she has been the driving force behind our success.

How Does THRIVE work? 

First

We listen to you and deal with any of the here and now issues that are concerning you and your loved ones.

Then

Once the immediate issues have been addressed we have conversation to learn about you and your life. From this we will then look at the bigger picture to see how we can improve your situation.

Finally 

Together we find practical solutions for the things that matter to you or that you are worried about.
