Supported living services enable individuals with a disability to live independently in their own home, with appropriate support to help them manage their own tenancy and achieve greater freedom and control in their lives. Support can be provided in a person’s own house, their flat or in a shared living environment.
The services we provide can range from occasional visits from a support worker, flexible support during the day or in the evening, overnight and/or at weekends, right through to 24 hours a day. Some services might be shared if more than one person with support needs live together, for instance a couple sharing a flat.
Our staff are fully trained and take a person-centred approach to planning and delivering each individual’s support.
This means that, when we work with a person and their family, we listen to what they want and what matters to them, so they are always at the very heart of conversations and decisions about their support, and how it is planned and provided.
Together, we create a unique and tailored ‘personal support plan’ for each individual, that outlines the type of support they receive, how much and how often.
Our fully trained staff can help with things:
- personal care – health and wellbeing, washing, preparing meals, medication
- running a home – maintaining a tenancy agreement, budgeting, paying bills
