Supported Living

Embrace Health Care Supported Living

Embrace Health Care’s supported living package is used to describe the arrangement whereby someone who already has, or who wants their own tenancy or own home, has support from a “Care and Support” provider to help them live as independently and safely as possible.

Many of our clients using the supported living service are in homes that are shared by 2 or 3 people with a similar health problems, such as a past substance misuse problems or a particular disability.

The services we offer obviously overlap to some degree with the Domiciliary Care Service but typically the requirements are different as we support across the spectrum of ages and disabilities where domiciliary is typically older people.

Often we provide Respite services where family and permanent carers take a break and we cover the needs of the clients for a few few hours, a day or two, or even a couple of weeks allowing for holidays.
