At Valleywood Care, we believe every individual deserves a place to call home, where care and comfort go hand in hand. That’s why we take pride in redefining supported living and setting the standard for quality care. Combining comfortable housing with 24/7 assistance, we strive to create a supportive and homely environment for our clients that fosters a sense of belonging and well-being. In this blog, we explore our supported living services and how they benefit our lovely clients, giving them a place to call home .…
What is supported living?
Our supported living service is designed to create a seamless blend of comfort and care to ensure the well-being of our clients in our inviting bungalows and houses. Our approach is unique, with a dedicated team of support workers who rotate shifts in the same location. This builds a community where individuals can thrive, guaranteeing that they receive consistent care of the highest quality, whether it be in the form of:
- Personal care
- Community integration
- Skill development
- Meal preparation
- Laundry and ironing
As part of our commitment to providing a well-rounded lifestyle, we also actively incorporate activities and events into our supported living service to enrich the lives of our clients. One recent highlight involved taking six of our lovely clients on a week-long trip to Blackpool, exploring some of the best attractions. You can check out the full story of their adventure here.
Additionally, we offer the option of shared living, recognising the importance of companionship. In shared living arrangements, we carefully match two clients based on their needs, personalities, and interests, creating a supportive and harmonious living situation. This approach not only provides companionship and enhances the sense of community within our housing facilities, but allows clients to share the experience with someone who understands the supported living journey as they embark on it together.
Benefits of supported living
We’re proud to offer a supported living service that extends beyond basic care and provides many benefits for our clients and their families. Our holistic approach is focused on providing personalised care to suit the unique needs of every individual, streamlining processes, opening communication, and fostering a sense of reassurance.
- Enhanced quality of life – Our personalised care plans are designed to enhance every aspect of daily living for our clients. From engaging activities to personal care, our supported living service enables them to enjoy high-quality support with the familiarity of their belongings. This can reduce stress and help them to maintain a sense of independence.
- Continuous support – Clients benefit from round-the-clock care in our supported living houses. This contributes to a safer living environment and provides an immediate response to needs where prompt assistance is required. Continuous support ensures individuals have consistent care, offering stability, trust, and peace of mind.
- Sense of community and companionship – With our shared living option and the activities incorporated into our supported living services, Valleywood Care offers a sense of community for clients. This allows them to feel a genuine connection with our dedicated support workers and their fellow residents, sharing the journey of supported living and quality support.
- Comfort – Comfort is at the heart of our supported living services – the well-being of our clients is our utmost priority.
