Supported living as a model for housing with care and support
What is supported living?
Supported living refers to schemes that provide personal care to people as part of the support that they need to live in their own homes. The personal care is provided under a separate contractual arrangement to those for the person’s housing. The accommodation is often shared, usually as a small group, but can be single household.
Starting a Supported Living Business in England, Wales and Scotland.
When setting up a Supported Living business in England, Wales and Scotland, there are many things to consider and many pitfalls to avoid. Adults Supported Living Services can provide care and support to help people live as independently as possible in a person centred way in properties where they have their own accommodation tenancies or own their properties.
Supported Living enables:-
- Adults with learning/physical disabilities or sensory problems
- Adults who have mental health problems
- Older people
- Adults who have spent time in hospital rehabilitation due to a brain injury
- Adults and young people with a disability who have spent time in residential care and are moving towards independent living or transitioning to adulthood.
- vulnerable ex-service personnel and ex-offenders to live as independently as possible within their own homes and in the local community.
Depending on the needs of the individual, Supported Living support varies from a few hours a day to 24-hour support for people with complex needs.
Some of those living in their own home share support, while others have individual support. With supported living, people have greater choice over many aspects of their lives.
Launching a Supported Living can be an even more steep learning task. Providing Supported Living services requires providers to manage a complex range of conditions. It is therefore important to have good quality policies and procedures that will guide you to deliver an outstanding Supported Living service.
Supported Living can be with personal care, which is a regulated activity (of which you will need to register with Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England, Care Inspectorate of Wales or Care Inspectorate of Scotland) or without personal care of which you do not need to register with these organisations.
With supported living, the people:
usually choose who lives with them, who comes into their house, and who supports them
have more security of tenure
have their own keys
pay bills and buy their own food and other items
are supported to be good tenants
choose whether to shop and cook on their own, or as a group.
Categories of Supported Living Services
Sheltered & Extra Care Housing
Extra care housing is specialist housing designed for older people. It is similar to sheltered housing but also offers help with personal care and household chores, so it may be suitable for people who have higher or changeable care needs.
Short-term Supported Housing
These are designed for people who only need support for a short period (or in crisis). Within a fixed timescale, people are supported to learn the skills they need to move on to greater independence.
For people who have been in hospitals for long periods and people needing greater degree of support. Usually refers to occupancy of up to 12 months and beyond.
