Living Ambitions Supported Living banner

Our supported living service is an excellent option for people with a variety of learning disabilities and related conditions.

The people we support may live in their own homes independently or with their family, with support workers delivering support on a flexible basis.

Support can be for just a few hours a week, with team members being on hand on a round-the-clock basis where needed.

We support people with anything from cooking, cleaning, changing bed linen and doing laundry, to daily personal care such as dressing, washing, personal grooming and taking medication.Our support workers also provide a vital companionship that people really appreciate. Seeing a familiar face on a regular basis gives them a regular source of conversation and social interaction. A person's support team can also help them pursue hobbies and interests, go out to work or volunteer, develop new friendships and stay in touch with friends and family. Those with physical disabilities can live in a home environment that’s purpose designed around their specific mobility challenges.

Enabling people to develop the confidence and skills to become active members of their community.

Supported living is also a great option for people who are ‘stepping down’ from residential care and who are making the transition to living independently in the community.

This could be a flat, house or bungalow. People also have the option to share accommodation with others. People can decorate their accommodation in any way they wish, have friends to visit and have full control of how they live. Their support team will agree a package of care with them and their family, or circle of support, and this may be anything from two hours a week to go shopping, to seven days a week complete care. Our support workers can offer 24-hour support, sleep in cover and monitor from a distance using Assistive Technology if required.
