Housing (easy read)

We support people to stay living in their own home. There are different types of housing and support to choose from.

Group of service users

If you need a lot of care and support, you might live as part of a group in a residential care home.

Residential care and nursing homes have areas like lounges, dining rooms and gardens where you can spend time with other people.

If you need less support, you might live in supported housing. This will give you more independence and control of your life.

Person centred support

In supported housing, you could live as part of a group or on your own. We will give you as much or as little support as you need.

Alarm pull cord

You can choose to have extra support, such as pendants and pull cords. This is called telecare and can help to keep you safe at home for longer.

A trades person

You might have a landlord. They will make sure the house you live in stays in a good condition.

Tenancy agreement

Your landlord will give you a document called a Tenancy Agreement. This tells you what your rights and responsibilities are.
