People We Support

Casbens Supported Living Community And Home Support Ltd has been providing specialised care and support to persons with learning disabilities, autism, and mental health disorders. 

Core conditions

It is difficult to categorise complex demands. Many people have several diagnoses, yet each person’s needs and problems are unique. Our homes and services commonly support people with numerous ailments, and we modify our approach appropriately. However, at a high level, our services are designed to help:

Learning disability

We provide tailored care and support to persons with mild, moderate, and severe learning disabilities, as well as those with related complex needs such as physical disabilities, mental health illnesses, and neurological disorders such as epilepsy and dementia.

We treat everyone as a person, with total dignity and respect, helping them to live safe, productive, and happy lives and, if feasible, to achieve good outcomes.

Our care professionals have extensive expertise working with people with learning disabilities.

Positive behaviour support is at the heart of our strategy. Our in-house PBS team collaborates closely with employees in all of our homes to monitor the people we care for behavioural, emotional, and psychological needs.

 

To determine the best ways to support an individual, the team adopts a holistic approach, taking into account their life history, physical health, personality, and preferences, as well as their emotional requirements. The PBS team provides specialised staff training, tailored to specific requirements, to ensure all important information is incorporated into individual care plans, increasing safety, consistency, and reliability.

We collaborate with a diverse variety of external specialists as part of a multidisciplinary team, including psychiatrists, psychologists, speech and language therapists, social workers, care managers, behavioural nurses, and occupational therapists.

Mental health needs

We support individuals with a wide range of mental health problems, including depression, schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar disorder, and personality disorders, many of whom have a history of hospitalisation.

We offer a full variety of mental health services and have a proven track record of supporting individuals in progressing along a planned pathway to a more independent lifestyle—living in their own home, receiving community support, and managing their own mental and physical health and well-being.

Our support programmes are centred on rehabilitation and the attainment of individual goals as part of that process. The notion of self-empowerment is crucial; it encourages people to accept responsibility for making educated decisions about key issues in their lives. We work with each person to learn about their needs, problems, and goals so we can help them build long-term resilience and ways to take care of themselves.

We collaborate closely with colleagues in community health teams and social services to develop individualised care plans with attainable goals that are evaluated via frequent evaluations. We use tools like Recovery Star to track progress in collaboration with the people we support.

Individuals establish their own goals and may track their progress over time. Their support in the process serves to reinforce motivation, improve skills and confidence, and aid them in defining new goals and the resources needed to attain them.

Autism spectrum conditions

We support many persons on the autism spectrum, ranging from those who can live relatively independently to those who have associated learning disabilities or mental health disorders and require more intense support.

Our approach is highly individualised, with our Positive Behaviour Support Team designing personalised care plans and adjusting surroundings to recognise the special requirements and preferences of the individual.

Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lifelong developmental disease that affects how a person communicates and interacts with others. It also influences how people see their surroundings.

Autism is classified as a spectrum disorder because the kind and degree of symptoms seen by people with ASD vary greatly. Treatments and services can help people feel better and operate better.

We use a person-centred approach at Casbens Supported Living Community And Home Support Ltd, including the individual, their family members, professionals, and staff, to give support to the person in order to support  them in developing and strengthening functional abilities and skills in order to improve their quality of life.

Each person receives a personalised care plan and a Positive Behaviour Support Plan, which are evaluated on a regular basis to reflect the individual’s development and success.

These plans explain every part of that person, including how they should be supported, what their likes and dislikes are, how to make their surroundings suited for them, and how to guarantee all of their requirements, from fundamental physiological to emotional, psychological, and physical well-being, are addressed.

Physical Disability Support

We support individuals with physical disabilities of all kinds, whether temporary or permanent, inherited or acquired. We have also worked with persons with cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, amputations, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, musculoskeletal injuries, and muscular dystrophy.

Many persons with physical disabilities also have other health concerns such as learning disabilities, brain traumas, mental health care needs, and other medical needs. Our professional employees have been trained and have supported clients with a wide range of complex requirements.

We provide services ranging from a few hours a week to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our programmes are always tailored to each individual and those who are important to them, ensuring that we understand the problems they’ve previously conquered, as well as their present needs, aspirations, and long-term ambitions.

All of this information helps us tailor what we do so that the people we support live happy, meaningful lives and consistently achieve successful outcomes with respect to their unique goals.

Our support plans are intended to be flexible in response to a person’s changing needs and capacities. By delivering encouraging words of support, we hope to instil a feeling of self-worth and self-reliance in others.

To address any adjustments or alterations to the services we provide, we have frequent feedback sessions with individuals, their loved ones, and any care professionals who may be engaged in their care. We ensure that everyone’s opinions and requests are heard and that everyone is kept informed and involved in the development and success of the support plan.
