How does supported living work?

Could your family benefit from supported living in Manchester? Designed to empower those with learning disabilities or mental health conditions to live independent lives, it makes a great alternative to living in a care home or receiving full-time care from a family member. Read on to learn more about the basics of supported living and how it can benefit you and your loved one.

What is support living? 

Supported living helps adults who experience mental health challenges or learning disabilities to live more independently. Our carers do this by providing practical help such as training on home maintenance, cooking and cleaning, paying bills and more. In addition to supporting independence, our services encourage your loved one to develop new skills and ultimately lead a more fulfilled life. 

There is no one size fits all solution when it comes to caring. That’s why we provide individual support plans catered towards the specific needs and goals of each individual. Together, we work with any family members, local authority representatives, and all involved in your loved one’s care to ensure their support plan matches their wishes and abilities. 

By providing a support plan as unique as your family member, we support them to have control and make choices about their life. We believe this can empower them to feel happier, healthier and more fulfilled. 

Who does supported living help?

We believe that all people have the right to live full, active and independent lives. That’s why we design our supported living services specifically for people living with learning disabilities or mental health issues.

With the friendship and consistent support from our compassionate carers, we can help your loved one to build confidence and become an active member of their community. We can help them to learn essential life skills, work towards personal goals and build a social network. Our professional carers are committed to helping them to become more independent and engage in the work or activities they want to.  

The benefits of supported living 

Supported living offers the chance to enjoy greater independence and live a more fulfilled life. 

Rather than move into a care home, your loved one can have the opportunity to rent, or even own property. Best of all, support from fully trained staff is completely tailored towards your loved one’s needs. This ensures they are well looked after, even when you can’t be there.
