Omega Elifar runs five small, friendly residential homes where people with learning disabilities can live and thrive. 
  
Our service users are at the heart of everything we do and the care we provide is tailored to suit the needs of each individual. 
  
The name ELIFAR stands for Every Life Is For A Reason, a philosophy which reminds us all that everyone deserves to enjoy comfort and happiness in life. 
  
Of course, this sometimes isn't easy to achieve for those with severe disability, but we make every effort to strive for success. 
  
And the help we give can often be life changing in cases where these individuals and their families have been under enormous physical and emotional strain. 

We are a new company that is unique in combining Elifar's decades of experience in providing loving, dedicated support for people with disabilities, with the professional expertise of the Omega Group. 
  
We are not an institutional set-up with a strict regime, rather we provide homes where people have the independence to flourish. 
  
We have a high ratio of staff to service users - and our staff are carefully chosen on the basis of their empathy and understanding of our aims and philosophy. 
  
We work hard to involve families in the decisions we take. 
  
"I can't praise Omega Elifar highly enough. Our Son is very happy and has gone from strength to strength."      Mother of service user at Churchfields.

We run three homes for adults with learning difficulties and another which provides specialist support for individuals with learning difficulties and dementia related conditions, these are spread around three villages nestling in the picturesque countryside of the Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex borders. 
  
We enjoy easy access to the A3 and locations such as Guildford, Aldershot and Portsmouth are within a 30-mile radius. London is just an hours drive away. 
  
The surrounding community offers a range of facilities our service users can enjoy, including swimming, bowling, ice-skating and the cinema, libraries and theatres, schools and local colleges providing further education for adults with learning disabilities. 
  
We believe in promoting independence and developing the skills and abilities of each individual, helping them use ordinary services in the local community and having the opportunity to mix with ordinary people. 
  
We avoid over-protectiveness but at the same time we ensure that any risks are acceptable and kept to a minimum. 
  
"All service users have the same rights as any other citizen. Although the individuals who live here may have different abilities than ourselves, they are people with feelings, dreams, ideas, wants and needs."       Equality - one of our Core Values 
  
We are a small company so our managers know our service users and follow their progress: it is part of our 'person-centred' approach. 
  
And we make sure relatives are included in decision-making and are able to give their views. 
  
When people in our homes need changes in their lives, when problems arise or opportunities come up, we speak to the service user's 'circle of support' - so their independent advocate, family, social worker and speech and language therapist are all involved. 
  
Their achievements are something our founder Hilary Marsden would have been proud of. 
              
Mission Statement

Omega Elifar Limited aims to achieve the most rewarding possible lifestyle for our service users to enable them to develop a fulfilling life in the community, to constantly seek to improve and to be responsive to the changing needs and wishes of the people we support.  It is our aim that people who use our service should be valued, with the same rights as others to live in society as respected citizens.  This is to be achieved by promoting choice and providing opportunities in day-to-day situations, working alongside rather than for the individual.  We will maintain a climate in which individuality, independence and personal dignity are respected whilst providing support and simulation to enable Service Users to live life to the full.
