The service supports young adult males with Learning Difficulties/Autism and/or Mental Health Needs, who would benefit from living in their own space with a bespoke care package to suit their needs, plus background support.
We are experienced in managing complex and challenging behaviours and provide a strong staff team for consistency and development of quality relationships.
All staff are Physical Intervention, Positive Behaviour and Intensive Communication Trained.
We provide individuals with appropriate support for their individual needs. We are outcome focused and encourage the development of life skills. We also work with our service users to integrate them with-in the wider community and liaise with family members regarding ongoing care and activities.
Due to the level of complex needs we are able to support within these homes, we work closely with our health and social care colleagues to set outcome plans.
We are able to meet the highest of complex needs within these two homes.
I started working in care in 1997 when I left school. I started off working in nursing care as a carer and in time I progressed to a senior. This was a rewarding job and I learned so much during the 10 years within the company.
I moved to Essex in 2007 and started working with a company providing support to people with Autism and complex needs. At times this was difficult, but it was also rewarding. It gave me a sense of achievement knowing that I had supported a young person to fulfil a simple task or reach a millstone outcome.
In 2008 I also started fostering Young children with Autism and ADHD, this was an amazing experience and I was able to use all my years of experience and put these tools to good use with the 16 children I supported.
