For People Needing Full Time Support
Most of our support for people with learning disabilities and autism is delivered through supported living – that is, support for people living in their own home, alone or with other people. People like Edward, Jackie, Jamie and Zoe.
For some, supported living may not be the best option, therefore, at Dimensions we also run residential care homes across the country. These are regulated by the Care Quality Commissions.
How Dimensions Help People Needing Full Time Support
For people needing full-time support, we provide a highly personalised service, with each individual’s service provision being based on their views, needs, and preferences. We support people to access the community, develop independent living skills, and listen to them and their families to shape a service that is as individual as they are. Choice and inclusion are at the heart of everything we do, which makes it key to achieving a successful service.
We ensure that each person is involved in choosing who supports them, therefore bespoke job adverts are created using staff matching tools and one-page profiles to identify the characteristics of the ideal support worker. We even go one step further and allow the individual to be involved in the shortlisting and interview process and have a say on who they would like to work with.
We believe that each person we support should have opportunities to develop relationships, learn new things and enjoy the activities they wish to do. Becoming part of the local community enables individuals to live an active and inclusive life.
