Supported Living Homes : How To Develop The Perfect Housing With Support Scheme

Have you ever wondered how to develop and find the best supported living homes?  Well, question no more as we have just released our new case history: 'The Apartment Project With 'Individual Front Doors’- Bringing citizens back to their home town'.  This study describes completed work with one of our customers, a local authority, and their wider multi-agency partners, all working towards the optimum housing with support scheme. As Sandie Keene Director of Adult Social Services in her address about supported housing in Leeds said, 'The future is to innovate, innovate, innovate, pushing the boundaries of what we know...' and that's exactly what this venture did.

Over recent years, the government has required, through a variety of mechanisms, including bills, that health and social care are to work together to improve the quality of services and people’s experiences of them.  In 2012 NHS England was given a mandate which insisted they provide ‘care which feels more joined-up to the users of services’ and which ‘ensures people experience smooth transitions between care settings and organisations.’  This duty has been further underpinned by the Care And Support White Paper which set out more detailed proposals for integrating health and care services.

T.P Properties has been working in an integrated manner for many years.  

The brief concerned in this case study was to create an apartment project, with each dwelling having its own front door.  Though considered holistically the story of this project offers a great example of how stakeholders in partnership can ensure that vulnerable citizens can return to their home town, receive superior individualised support, with the added advantage of making substantial savings to care budgets.

Parties, who prize a true person-centred service and have the courage to embrace longer term change, can use their time and skills to make a huge difference to society for generations to come. As Norman Lamb, former Minister of State for Care and Support, wrote in 2013, 'We want... to be one of the best countries in Europe at helping people with long term conditions live healthily and independently.'  We feel that this case study exemplifies this desire, as does every other project undertaken by T.P Properties.
