For many with learning disabilities, mental illness, complex care needs or struggling to deal with challenging behaviours, day to day tasks can become difficult without additional help which makes supported living such an important area of work. Where complex care needs including mental illness or learning disabilities are present the carers involved require very specific training in order to meet the tailored needs of these individuals. Here at Time 4 U we base all of our supported living services around a person-centred approach to care known as positive behaviour support (PBS). We believe that one of the most effective ways to support individuals in setting goals and reaching personal achievements for the long term is through PBS. With respect of human rights, dignity and unique needs at the centre of positive behaviour support, our team listen to individuals, developing care plans that put quality of life first.
With positive behaviour support at the forefront of our offering, supported living services from Time 4 U Limited encourage service users to achieve a high level of independence within their own living space, an essential part of improving general quality of life. With a service of this kind, individuals are provided the additional benefit of regular help with some of the everyday tasks that can become a struggle such as dressing, washing or taking medication. Supported living services can make a huge difference when it comes to building a person’s self-esteem and confidence in order to be able to explore and celebrate their own identity.
Over the years our team have seen that some individuals with a form of mental health illness, complex care needs or learning disability can greatly benefit from the structure, treatments, services and support offered by our carefully trained team of professional carers. Finding the right supported living services and supported living accommodation can be a little bewildering, but the most important aspect of any care service is that the individual feels at home wherever they choose. Everyone is different and for each person, finding the ‘right time’ to seek supported living services can vary, there is no definitive point at which to take up these services so it is worth taking the time to really consider the best option.
Depending on individual backgrounds, needs or personalities, each service user will receive expert help and guidance in areas such as building self-confidence, reaching goals and learning essential life skills. All of our supported living services aim to be engaging, challenging and most of all, rewarding. Our team work hard to construct programmes with timelines that are in accordance with individual capabilities, to not only see positive results but keep momentum high. If you are interested in learning more about any of our supported living services, supported living accommodation or positive behaviour support please contact us and a member of our team will be happy to help.
Our Supported Living Team
Our team’s knowledge and expertise in supported living services comes from a broad range of experiences including, and certainly not limited to: supported living with mental health needs, dual diagnosis, mild learning difficulties and forensic clients. All of the supported living goals and objectives we devise on an individual-level with our end users are carried out to the highest possible standards, and in accordance with the Health And Social Care Act 2008 and appropriate Care Quality Commission (CQC) guidelines. Whilst practical help is certainly high on our agenda, we also believe and an essential part of any assisted or supported living service is allowing people to engage with their communities in a way that makes them feel valued. Our dedicated team work hard to liaise and consult with a number of individuals and groups to ensure this happens, including: GP’s, Local Authorities and Recovery Colleges as well as local events, activities and training programmes. Our supported living services aim to uncover individual’s strengths and weaknesses in order to find activities tailored to them specifically, which will not only help them take control of their day-to-day lives, but improve their mental health at the same time.
