What does the support include?

Community support is designed to help people with a range of support needs retain their independence and stay in their own home while accessing support that meets their needs. The support is provided by the team at Aldanat Care, with a support package tailored to their individual needs and abilities. Everyone that users this service is encouraged to be actively involved in designing their support package, ensuring that care evolves to meet changing needs and goals.

We believe in taking positive risks which harness the potential and individual preferences of each person, ensuring that the people we support are encouraged to set goals, make progress, and be valued and active members of their local community.

Our team is there to support with everything from learning skills such as self-care and wellbeing, cooking and cleaning, to supporting people to enjoy their local area, attend college and much more. We also support people to maintain their tenancy, ensure that the environment is safe and support with things like budgeting and shopping.

In addition to our team of dedicated support workers, the people we support have access to a trained mental health nurse and an in-house psychologist/forensic psychologist, and a PBS Practitioner, who specialises in PBS training and support for our teams. We have strong relationships with a wider multidisciplinary team, ensuring that we can access high-quality speech and language therapists, Occupational Therapists, LD community nursing teams and psychiatrists depending on need.
We work with the people we support, their families and social workers, to ensure that every individual is supported to understand and successfully manage their own tenancy, including ensuring that they are supported to access funding and benefits.
