Crossroads is an established domiciliary care provider helping people live independently at home through person-centred care.
Domiciliary care at Crossroads
We focus on the care, support and treatment we give to service users, their family and their carers. We have been helping people in Northern Ireland for almost 40 years. We seek to take a holistic approach to care, seeing our service users as a whole person, not focusing purely on their symptoms or condition.
Person-centred care supports people to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to more effectively manage and make informed decisions about their own health and health care. It is coordinated and tailored to the needs of the individual. And, crucially, it ensures that service users are always treated with dignity, compassion and respect.
Support for people who still live in their own homes but who require additional support to maintain their independence and quality of life.
