The Supported Living service is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide personal care and supported living services for adults with learning disabilities living in rented accommodation in the St Helens area.
Supported Living enables and supports adults with a learning disability, some of whom have complex needs such as autism. They may also have difficulty in managing their behaviour, so we adopt a multi-agency approach to promote positive behaviour management in a safe and ethical manner, with the aim of reducing behavioural incidents.
This client group is diverse: some people require minimal care and support, while others require intensive support due to their level of learning disability and/or physical disabilities. This type of support includes developing and promoting their independence in a person-centred way, providing support and/or direct personal care, carrying out safer people handing tasks, supporting people to manage their behaviour by following support plans, risk assessments and individual risk management strategies.
The overall aim and values of the service are to promote person-centred care so that people lead positive, fulfilling lives while promoting independence, social inclusion, choice, and overall control of their lives. The dedicated Supported Living workers and management work together as a team to help people achieve a full and rewarding life.
The Registered Manager is Melanie Catterall, who can be contacted on 07717 868562.
