A key part of what we do to empower individuals that we support is to help with the development of independent daily living skills that would allow them to move onto more independent settings. With this aim in mind, we are delighted to announce that we have purchased our first home that we will soon start working on to convert into a shared supported living home.
Supported living is an alternative to residential care homes, where individuals will be provided the same high levels of support but in a more independent setting.
This means that some of the individuals that currently live in residential settings will be able to move into more independent settings when they are ready, and be assured to receive the same high quality of support that they have become used to with us, but in a more independent environment.
To head up this new offering we are delighted to welcome Kerrie Lightwood to the management team at Godfrey Barnes Care. Kerrie come’s with a wealth of experience and knowledge of the sector having headed up a substantial portfolio of successful supported living schemes across the region in previous roles.
In addition to this we are very proud to have partnered up with a reputable Housing Association that will ensure the needs of individual’s placed within this home are met to the highest standards and that any support requirements that they may have are always picked up.
