We understand that case managers have an important and delicate role liaising between builders, architects, lawyers and the family themselves. Providing critical help and support for families and friends who rely on specialist equipment to maintain their quality of life means many case managers are often a much-needed resource to those in need.
That’s why at United Care we work to make things as straightforward and as smooth as possible. In addition, United Care are delighted to be able to provide support at the design/layout stage, offering advice on function, problem-free installation and training.
We are the only manufacturer offering all specialist installed transfer and care equipment. Which means case managers can enjoy smooth and efficient case management by working alongside one specialist supplier.
With all these services under one roof, case managers can focus their attention on the needs of their clients, secure in the knowledge United Care has it covered.
Appointing and installing specialist equipment can be a complex task. Case managers need to know they have access to the latest designs and the right technical support as well as up to date safety standards. United Care can support case managers with all stages of the process, from architects consultation and CAD drawings where necessary to full room assessments and training on all products.
Our technical teams can consider the number of structural and practical elements required, as well as suggestions for room layout and best practice for using the equipment right from the start.
When faced with such a diverse range of equipment from many suppliers, working out what is best for your client can be a challenge. Using our latest guide will help you work through the minefield that can be transfer and care equipment.
We understand that there can be many complexities in each case and client so have put together a supporting document asking the questions you need when Specifying Hoisting, Bathing and Changing equipment.
Fit for purpose prescriptions for simple or complex cases should be based on the deeper physical needs of the end-user and their carers. No one understands these needs, as well as case managers and our experienced product specialists, build lasting relationships with case managers to bring solutions and ideas based on a comprehensive understanding of what is available and suitable.
For example, we can suggest alternative types of internal bathing support or more appropriate slings and bring space and aesthetic ideas to create an optimum solution between our own and other specialist equipment.
We know that in many cases, this specialist equipment is unknown to the families and end-users. That’s why all our products can be demonstrated and tried out in the domestic environment. We bring our products to you in our specifically adapted vehicles and will discuss options with you and your clients to find the right solution.
We also offer CPD Seminars in a range of topic areas to help simplify some of the more challenging areas of transfer and care.
We understand the challenges of the contractors, the architect, the case manager and the family and are experienced at working in difficult environments as well as adding value by ensuring our product installation dove-tails in smoothly with the other construction, preventing costly mistakes.
