Dewsbury Supported Living Service

In this section

Dewsbury Supported Living is a small individualised service providing care and support to people with physical and/or learning disabilities within their own home.

Dewsbury Supported Living team provides person centred support to individuals with learning disabilities and some challenging behaviour. Staff actively encourage all clients to be involved in the planning of the care and support them to be involved in any decision making. All clients have a person centred plan and support clients to maintain a healthy lifestyle and promote good health.

Dewsbury Supported Living Service is registered with the Care Quality Commission.

Staff are well trained and committed to supporting clients with the upmost respect and dignity. Staff support tenants to use/explore the wider community by using the local amenities i.e. shops, pubs, barbers and chemist. Staff support clients to fulfil their hobbies by going to adult education, theatres, football matches, and swimming etc

Dewsbury Supported Living team plan works to St Anne’s Values:-

  1. Care – To always strive to provide compassionate and nurturing care to the people we support.
  2. Person Centred – To value everyone as an individual and make adaptions wherever we can to accommodate people with a range of support needs.
  3. Dignity and respect – to demonstrate strong values of dignity and respect for the people we support and each other and to recognise and celebrate everyone’s unique contribution.
  4. Quality – To strive offer the highest standard of innovative care and support and to demonstrate this through measurable outcomes.

Who can refer?

Referrals to the service are accepted from health and social care professionals; the team at Dewsbury Supported Living are always pleased to have the opportunity to discuss how their service can meet the needs of adults with a learning disability.

Coronavirus (Covid 19) Statement

Due to the exceptional circumstances due to the ongoing Coronavirus (also known as Covid 19) and the Government rules about self-isolating it is very important to reduce the risk of cross infection to all our Clients and staff teams. Our teams are working hard to support all our clients and are committed to keeping everyone as safe as possible.

This means that, in most circumstances, and in line with government information regarding self-isolation and staying at home there should be no visitors to any of our services.

We know, however, that this will be very distressing for some of our Clients.

Therefore, we are saying there must be no visitors to services unless there are exceptional circumstances and the visit is essential.

Before a visit can take place, this must be risk assessed by the manager considering government advice and the individual circumstances. Before setting off on any visit to your relative/friend please get in contact with St Anne’s staff to discuss your visit.

Our services are using all kinds of technology, including social media to make sure that the people we support can stay in touch with those important to them

St Anne’s has developed a visitors protocol to enable visits to begin again in North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire care homes.

In line with Government & local Council Guidelines each Client may have one family member or other person who is close to them visit on a regular basis.

Decisions where visitors can go are being based on Individual Local Authority advice following Government guidelines.

And this message will be updated regularly
