Supported living services are designed for those who want to live as independently as possible, while still being able to rely on access to the individual support they need. This kind of support package is ideal for those with capacity and ability who still need help with day-to-day tasks and activities, including those ready to move on from a residential home or special needs education. However, in many cases, people with profound or multiple complex needs can also benefit from a supported living environment, with care staff providing 24-hour support.
We work closely with local authorities, care professionals and housing providers to deliver support packages based on individual need.
Our supported living service helps individuals with a variety of learning disabilities and complex needs live an independent life, who require 24/7 specialist support to care and support for their daily needs and therefore cannot live independently in their own home. Each person has their own individual bedroom and there will be shared communal areas such as living room, dining room and kitchen.
Our outstanding team of supported living and healthcare professionals have an excellent track record of providing flexible, high-quality, person-centred care, support and enablement for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, acquired brain injuries and a spectrum of other needs.
No matter how we can help, we always strive to encourage independence amongst our supported living services customers, allowing them to enjoy their own choice of activities while living their lives to the full and on their own terms.
Everyone deserves a home to feel proud of but also modern, homely surroundings. It’s about providing support that fits seamlessly around you, with uniquely rewarding relationships that will help to build your confidence and independence.
