Self Contained Apartments provided within services that are staffed on a 24 hour basis or according to the individual needs of each resident.
Services are provided under a Domiciliary Care Agency Registration. This provides the flexibility to provide highly individualised services designed to manage and reduce the risk of offending and or other risk behaviour, to monitor mental state, to facilitate the generalisation of self management skills. It offers a stage in which the individuals ability to sustain independent living can be further explored whilst offering the security of an on site staff team.
These services staffing levels vary between 24 hour support and tailored support hours which are based on the individual needs of each resident. Services are again provided under a Domiciliary Care Agency Registration. We design care plans that gradually withdraw services. This offers the opportunity to carefully assess the point at which the individual may be at a stage where entirely independent living may be appropriate.
Our service allows for the management of and is responsive to the changing needs of the people placed with us. We recognise that recovery is a process that can feature episodes of relapse and that working with individuals to manage those episodes in the community can be valuable in developing an individual’s sense of control over their lives and informative in terms of what is effective in terms of service provision at points of crisis. The staff team is adequately skilled and supported to respond to changing needs and are available 24 hours per day.
Individuals are able where required to move between Stages as their needs require. An individual in Stage 4 for example could move to Stage 1 or 2 should that be considered necessary should their presentation fluctuate.
Where individuals move between Stages we are able to maintain relational security for them as staff can work across the services in order to facilitate this.
