Cartref Ni: supporting adults with learning disabilities living at home
The kind of support Cartref Ni can provide:
Supported Living enables individuals to live a fulfilled life in their own home, as an integral part of their local community. Sometimes, a person will choose to share his/her home with others; sometimes they choose to live alone.
The people we support may require guidance and assistance with everyday tasks such as cooking, shopping, budgeting and cleaning. Others may have personal care needs. Cartref Ni staff have a wealth of experience in delivering person centred support, providing a unique service to each person. This is reviewed and adapted according to their changing needs, wishes and aspirations.
We provide dedicated teams of staff and do not use agency staff meaning the people being supported know the staff working with them.
Accommodation is usually provided via a Housing Association, who act as Landlord, and maintain the property to the required standard. Each person that we support has a Tenancy Agreement and our support workers help them to understand their rights and obligations as Tenants.
Occasionally, accommodation is owned by a private individual or group. Once again we would support them with all the responsibilities towards the house, in conjunction with relatives or the local authority.
We are commissioned by Local Authorities, people on Direct Payments and by individuals directly.
