ILS currently assists adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and or mental health needs to live as independently as they can within their local communities.
ILS works closely with other professionals and extended families to ensure our services compliment the overall support provided to individuals within their home. Our approach in partnership is to assist individuals to gain or relearn skills which will assist them to achieve higher levels of independence and to reach their own personal goals in life whilst receiving the support they need to live safely within the community.
Using a person centered approach that places the needs and preferences of the Service User at the very heart of the services, ILS ensures that care plans not only address issues of welfare and safety but that they are written, monitored and reviewed in partnership with the individual Service User and that the focus always remains on addressing an individual needs and seeking to achieve the outcomes they seek in becoming more independent citizens.
We are able to support young adults in the transition from children’s services or living with parents to setting up their own home for the first time. We also support adults with a learning disability and or physical disability make the transition from residential or hospital care to live within the community either on their own or with the close support of others.
We support adults with a disability living with their families, by offering families and carers support including community based activities, facilitating short breaks and providing care and support within the home.
We are also able to assist individuals with mental health problems to be more fully supported in the community by providing practical and emotional support in partnership with other professionals and agencies.
