Individual Service Funds Management

For service users choosing this package, Crossroads Care would manage their total individual budget. Their own personal assistants will be employed by Crossroads Care, thus giving PA full employee benefits as listed above but all care for the service user would be provided by their designated PA. Service Users would retain complete control regarding when and how they wish to use their allocated budget. Crossroads Care would manage payroll and wages as services user's PA are employed through Crossroads Care payroll system. A service user would also benefit from peace of mind by having replacement support, when their own PA is not available.

Please contact us to discuss any of the above in more details.
