The breadth and depth of our integrated network means that you get the support that suits your particular need.

Community support

Across all disciplines – residential and supported living – CareTech’s ethos is to empower each individual to maintain existing contacts with the community and explore new opportunities for growth and development.

Each person’s needs are different; some are self-sufficient, with the capacity to make their own decisions and live a semi-independent life, whilst others require continuous care and support. We want our service users – whatever their abilities or challenges – to get involved and become part of their wider community. This provides them with the best opportunities to lead an independent life, enabling them to experience everything their community has to offer, whether this is attending college, following interests and hobbies or simply meeting new people and making friends.

Young people and adults are supported as they access the local community, find employment or education, and develop friendships, with the aim of gradually reducing the level of support and building independence skills, including travel training and assessing risk.

Our core values are to respect, support and promote the dignity, rights and self-determination of each person. Our community support is an integral part of our service, with staff enabling, empowering and supporting them as they live life as a valuable member of society.

Community support – Case study

Supporting Shehnaz

Names have been changed to protect identities.

Shehnaz is 43 years old and has ASD and moderate Learning Disabilities. She lives on her own in a residential home and has done so for the past 5 years.

Shehnaz has built up positive relationships with her team of Support Workers who she has helped to choose and loves to spend time with her family and friends who are thrilled with how happy and settled she seems.

CareTech provides her with support 24 hours a day to enable her to live independently in the community. With the help of her staff team she is able to complete her own weekly grocery shopping and other day to day tasks.

Shehnaz doesn’t attend any formal day services as she likes to have more control over her daily routine. Instead she works with her team to make her own plans. She enjoys horse riding, attending the Snoezelen, swimming and walking.

Thanks to CareTech Shehnaz is able to lead a full and active life while still maintaining her independence.
