Support to live the life they choose

At Lifeways, we empower adults living with learning disabilities and other support needs to lead fulfilling, more independent lives. How that looks for each person is completely different, and so we always take a personal approach, working together with families, support networks and individuals to make sure everything we do is tailored around them. Whether it’s learning new skills, making new friends, or spending more time in their local community, we’ll be by their side to support them in doing just that and more.

"I’d never lived on my own before. I can do more independent stuff now. I like going to the cinema, shopping and going out."

Sam, who moved into supported living in his 40s

“It was everything I wanted for Nathan - for him to have the independence of his own place, but still be in the community and supported by having people around him.”

Mum of Nathan who moved to Lifeways in his late 20s

Great locations

With Lifeways, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to places to live, with houses, bungalows and apartments in both our supported living and residential care locations. All our services have shops, amenities and transport links nearby, so your loved one will benefit from being closely connected to their local community. When it’s time to make a decision on where to live, we’ll spend time showing you and your loved one around the locations we feel will meet their needs and future requirements. These visits are also a great opportunity to meet our support teams and other people we support, and ask any questions you might have.

Moving in

Making the move from the family home will be a big period of change in your loved one’s life, especially if they’ve lived there well into their adult years. At Lifeways, it’s important to us that you, as a family, feel supported and comfortable throughout this time, and so we’ll be on hand to help make the move as smooth as possible. We’ll make sure to keep you and your family up-to-date throughout the whole process, aim to keep disruptions to routines to a minimum, and offer you lots of friendly advice and support to help you feel informed and confident when it comes to making any decisions.

“It’s the best of both worlds - we can come any time to visit, but also it’s lovely for us to be able to go out now, visit friends, go shopping. And Ross and Tara (his sister) get on better now than they’ve ever done before.”

Parents of Ross, who moved to Lifeways aged 37

Time together

If you do make the decision for your loved one to move into supported living or residential care, it doesn’t mean your relationship has to change. In fact, we often find that once some of the responsibility of daily care is eased, the people we support build even stronger bonds with their family. We support family members to spend as much time as they’d like with their loved one, and we’ll keep you fully involved in both the planning of support and any changes we may propose.
