Our care approach is tailored to the individual’s needs and support for people with learning disabilities and/or autism. Our unit is set up mostly in a small and homely environment that enable our trained, friendly and dedicated staff to focus on providing the best level of care in a relaxed and welcoming environment.
In addition to their learning disability and/or autism, some of the service users would have additional support needs such as challenging behaviour, complex health needs or additional disabilities.
Our supported living schemes focus on supporting people to live independently within their accommodations and in the local community. We support and encourage individuals with household tasks, shopping and managing their finances. We also facilitate our clients to access local facilities such as leisure centres, libraries, and empowering them to engage with accessing education or employment in the community.
Our staff teams are highly trained and experienced in supporting clients with a learning disability and/or autism. They are determined on doing everything they possibly can to improve people’s health and wellbeing, and are focused on achieving positive outcomes.
Displaying challenging behaviours is a way of letting people know your feelings and emotions when you don’t have the communication or social skills to do so in other ways. When practicing positive behaviour support, we start by looking at the reasons behind each individual person’s behaviour that challenges.
There is always a reason for someone’s behaviour and we carry out a full assessment to work out what it is. From there, we can develop realistic plans and strategies that will reduce the frequency of the behaviour that challenges and improve the person’s quality of life.
Our support workers base the way they interact with and support someone on a full understanding of that person’s behaviour. Our practice development leads often work alongside families as well as the support team to ensure that people experience consistency in their support, whoever is delivering it.
