Planning ahead

The transition process from children’s to adult support services should start around the age of 14, meaning you can take your time in researching the different support options available. We’ve seen countless times how valuable that extra planning time can be when making such a big decision - along with starting your search early to look at the different types of homes and locations available, and to understand what might suit your loved one best.

“I feel far more positive about Beattie’s future since moving to Lifeways. I couldn’t be happier with her progress, development, and life here.”

Support to live the life they choose

Our approach is all about the individual. We pride ourselves on providing flexible, transparent and tailored support that means your family can spend less time worrying about the period of change, and more time looking forward to what the future might hold. Our support is built around empowering your child or loved one to enjoy doing all the things they like to do, and to meet any goals they may choose to set themselves. Together with your family and anyone in your support network, we’ll build your individual support plan to make sure everything we do is helping your loved one enjoy a fulfilling and more independent life.

Moving in

Moving into supported living or residential care doesn’t have to be a sudden event - in fact, we often recommend the opposite. By staggering your child or loved one’s transition, they can gradually get used to life in their new home and surroundings a few hours or days at a time. We’ll also support them to settle into their new lifestyle and explore the local area, whilst continuing to enjoy their favourite hobbies and interests.

Timely communication

Good communication is equally important, and is something we pride ourselves on at Lifeways. There are lots of different people involved in the transition process, and so by ensuring everyone is kept up-to-date with timely information, we’ll keep disruption to any existing routines to an absolute minimum. We know flexibility is key, and we’re happy to adapt our approach with your changing needs or preferences in mind.
