We can provide support to people living on their own, to enable them to maintain their independence.
This could be support with shopping, cooking. cleaning, budgeting etc. We can also provide support to health appointments and social activities. Support would be provided from a regular team of support workers who are able to get to know the person they are supporting really well. Support is planned around the person depending on their needs and activities.
We are also able to support adults with disabilities who are living with their families. This is usually with social activities, exercise and appointments.
I live in a flat in South Manchester. I have support for 12 hours a week to help me with my shopping, batch cooking meals, which I freeze then have for my tea each night, cleaning my flat and going to appointments.
My staff also support me with social things like meeting up with my friends, organising Ring and Ride to the allotment and other places. They encourage me to eat healthily and be more active by walking, going to Simply Cycling and I’ve recently started walking rugby.
I’ve also been on holiday with Ordinary Lifestyles and I’m hoping to go to London this year. I’m interested in history, geography and music. I have visited lots of places. My ambition is to be Prime Minister; I would do a better job than this one!
