These aims are made meaningful through the creation of individual care plans.

The residents are supported 24 hours a day, seven days a week by the Housing Services Manager and his team of care workers. The team provides encouragement, support and assistance to residents in order to improve their quality of life, freedom and independence, with a view to move on to minimum supported housing when appropriate.
