Supported Living

Alpha Care and Support Services provides Supported Living. Our homes are in the London and Greater London areas.
The Homes are designed to make it possible for 18-65+ with Learning Disabilities, Autism, and physical disabilities.

With a person centred training around the service user’s needs, experience, and knowledge we have the ability to respond to the needs of our service users including those with challenging behaviour.

The registration age range is from 18- 65+. We are aware that some individual do not like sharing or they cannot live with other people due to their needs, this is why Alpha Care and Support Services, offer a unique Home opportunity. We set up services with one individual only requiring supported living. It is a bespoke service to meet the needs the individual and we can also create shared services if some people prefer to live in a shared accommodation.

Tenant’s Individual Support Plan

The Tenant’s Individual Support Plan (TISP), gives a lot of thought to the areas which are described as “supported activities”. The TISP was developed in order to help Service Users to achieve their goals in areas of their independent living. At Alpha Care and Support Services, we use ACE guiding Principles in our day-to-day work with clients to build a non-judgemental and empathic relationship.  This will help to develop an effective work pattern bringing harmony and compassion to Clients:

ACE

Accepting = Unconditional Positive Regard, non-judgemental or Caring
Congruent = Genuine or Realness
Empathic = Deeply Understanding the feelings or personal meanings
