What is supported living?
Supported living is when an individual is provided with care service at the comfort of their home, the aim of this service is to allow service users to live as independently as possible.
Staff usually visit the home to help you get out of bed, go out to college, or work, and do simple tasks such as shopping, housework, and repairs. They can also help with administrative tasks and personal care. work with individuals to help them live the way they want to, and access services and social activities as required.
Supported living empowers individuals
Supported living empowers adults who are in need or are entitled to support within their own home whilst being provided with the help that is suitable for them. It allows them to choose:
Service users may live in a flat or may be in a property where they are sharing with 2-3 other adults who also require similar services. Care that will be provided will be personalised to everyone needs whilst being cautious of keeping their independence or increasing it.
