Is there any extra support available?

If you feel you need extra support you will need to contact your Retirement Living Co-ordinator for them to arrange a referral to our Support and Enablement team for them to carry out an assessment of your needs.

At the initial assessment, they will talk to you to find out if there are any additional areas you need help with. The information you give will be confidential and will be used to assist them to develop and agree a support plan with you. The Support Plan will clearly show the areas in which you need support; the outcomes that are hoped to be achieved and how they will work towards achieving them.

The visits will be arranged for a time and date that is mutually agreed.
