Shaw Healthcare provides a range of community living services across the UK, to help elderly and disabled people to enjoy independence while receiving the support they need.
Community living options include:
– Extra care in an assisted living setting, such as retirement apartments or community living facility. This option provides independence, privacy and personal space but with the support of carers and staff when needed.
– Day care, via drop-ins at community care facilities – providing regular opportunities for socialising and meeting new people in a central location for a range of activities and events.
– Supported living, to help individuals move on from residential settings – either in their own home or in a community living facility. Accommodation in shared houses or flats is also available and can provide a cost-effective alternative.
Each care service is tailored to meet the requirements of the individual, offering a variety of suitable options such as physical therapy; emotional support; rehabilitation; home adaptation; help with medication, cooking, cleaning and personal hygiene; and assistance in attending social groups and engaging in activities.
Community living services are a fantastic middle ground between living at home and living in a care home, allowing residents privacy within their own living area but providing the reassurance of support and assistance when they need it. The level of support required varies from person to person, so a special care package will be created to provide as much or as little help as is needed.
