Support… with ambition
Sarah attended a specialist residential school after suffering a serious brain injury. She stayed with her grandparents in the summer holidays – we were contacted to help with all aspects of her daily life from feeding, drinking, breathing and mobility. Our trained staff, with input from Sarah and her family, created a structured support plan to ensure her needs were met and importantly she enjoyed a great quality of life.
In just 6 short weeks, Sarah accomplished her dreams from having her nails done, going to discos and even celebrating her birthday at Harry Potter Studios! It was an unforgettable summer holiday for Sarah, filled with many memories.
Sam had made valuable friendships with other people who used our services, so Alina Homecare staff and his family suggested that he considered moving into supported living accommodation.
Support… at home
Elizabeth was born with a learning disability at a time when institutionalised care was the only option. She spent 60 years in a variety of hospitals and care home settings. Changing attitudes, government policy and the advent of supported living ensured Elizabeth was able to move into her own home and with our support she has taken her rightful place in the community. She is a bright, lively, loving and charismatic lady whose life has been transformed in the process. Watch our short film to see how Elizabeth has transformed.
Support… with loneliness
Sam, a social and active individual who has acute epilepsy, was extremely excited to move back into his family home after his residential school placement had ended. Whilst enjoying being at home he still showed signs of frustration and described himself as lonely.
Support… in the community
Part of our role as Jermaine’s care and support provider is to support her to make her flat her home, to become increasingly self-reliant and to become a part of her local community. Taking part in new activities and making new friends is something that comes easily to some of us, but is a challenge for many of our clients. Jermaine is beginning to build relationships. She now has a part-time job; something she thought was a dream only a short time ago. Learn more about her story.
Support… with health
Broadening our client’s horizons, helping them to explore new activities and keeping fit and healthy is a role that we love. We developed DotComUnity – the online directory of service providers for the Disabled Community to support client achievements. Watch how Simon discovered the joys of surfing. He took to it like a duck to water!
