We know that some people require more round-the-clock care and that visiting home care isn’t always enough. Our supported living service is specifically designed to care for people with complex needs to stay independent and comfortable in their own homes.
Although similar to home care, supported living differs in that we support with more or less of every aspect of your day-to-day life.
Most of the supported living we offer is all day, every day, or near enough. We’re there for you with everything from your morning routine, planning your spending, picking up bits from the shop for tea, meeting friends, supporting your hobbies and everything in-between.
Just like your morning cuppa, we’re there when you need us to be to get you through the day.
And, because we’re there to support with so much of your life, it’s only right that we get to know you as a person and plan how we support you around that. We’ll include you and your family, as much as we can in decisions about your care. We’ll consider your likes, your dislikes and your hopes and aspirations and support you as much as we can to help you achieve what you want to.
Just like you, we have likes, dislikes and hobbies… you can get to know a little about the team and the friendly faces that may be supporting you.
How can supported living help me?
If you’re finding most aspects of day-to-day life a challenge to manage on your own, supported living may be right for you.
Sunlight’s bursting through the curtains and the birds are singing. It’s morning again, and we’re on-hand to ease you out of bed and help you wash and dress, ready to start the day with a good breakfast and a proper cup of tea. Maybe tea’s not your thing, who are we to argue? We’re there to listen to your likes and needs and support you with that.
We know managing your medication on your own can be tricky business. Remembering times, dosages and ordering prescriptions can become complicated. Our support workers are fully trained in medication administration and are there to remind you and support with administering and collecting any prescriptions.
Breakfast, elevenses, lunch, biscuit and a brew, tea/dinner (we’ll leave that up to you) – we’re there for it all. We can help to plan budgets for shopping, nip to the supermarkets to stock up on your favourites, plan and prep your meals and assist as much as is needed with mealtimes.
Getting a haircut? Collecting a pension? Attending an appointment? Nipping to the post office? These are just some of the things we can support you with. Whether it’s taking care of the shopping for you, as well as putting the food away in your cupboards or coming along with you on shopping trips to support – together, we’ll work out what’s best for you.
We know that both physical and mental ill-health can make household chores difficult. That’s why we’re happy to help with laundry, cleaning and any other domestic needs while we support you.
Whether football is your thing, you’re film buff or you just fancy some fresh air in the park – we’re here to support you as much as we can to do the things you love.
You may already, or be looking to access other areas of support. We can help with this. From support for anxiety or depression, help with managing long-term conditions, to help either into or sustaining employment. Our support workers can provide you with information on other services and support you with attending any groups and appointments.
What a day, aye? You’re ready to crawl under the duvet and count sheep. We’re there to support with your night-time routine. From personal care and getting changed to easing you into bed (our support workers are fully trained in moving and handling). Whatever level of support you need, we’ve got you covered.
