A learning disability can be mild, moderate or severe, which affects the level of amount of support an individual requires in their day-to-day life.
For those with more profound disabilities, the intensity of support needs will be greater, including higher levels of support for day to day needs. The level of support is flexible – whether it’s just a few hours a week or more intensive, it is tailored to meet individual needs.
The ability to communicate and make sense of the world may be limited, resulting in a difficulty for someone to express themselves, and making it more difficult to feel understood. Our approach puts the individual at the heart of what we do. We listen, learn and build relationships, providing support that’s unique to each person.
Where a person has limited or non-verbal communication, we work closely with Speech and Language Therapists. Communication is enhanced through mediums, including direct communication, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) boards and symbols, communication passports, talking albums, and Ipads/tablets.
We offer a range of different support for people living with learning disabilities, to maintain independence or provide encouragement to achieve a particular outcome
One option is supported living, where a small team of core staff supports individuals to live safely and comfortably in their own homes.
Our supported living homes provide stylish and purpose-built surroundings, to ensure people are supported and encouraged to live as independently as possible.
All of our homes are located in Solihull, with excellent transport links. Hence, they provide the perfect setting to enjoy exploring new places, meeting up with family and friends and participating in new hobbies and interests.
