The Shine therapeutic model of care was designed by Optima Care to ensure that people of all ages, with severe / enduring learning disabilities and complex needs, including mental health issues, realise their full potential. Underpinned by a clear support framework with milestones of personal goal achievement, Shine may be tailored according to individual need. It helps ensure a transition journey through our services towards more independent living.
