A&A provides bespoke, person-centred support packages to meet the needs of all service users to live successfully within the community - with the opportunity of our CYPs to have a consistent pathway into adulthood, without the need to move on to a new provider once 18. We endeavour to help people to access mainstream services and acquire skills to enrich their lives, to seek new horizons, healthy lifestyles, engage in leisure activities and allow them to maximise opportunity - all whilst receiving high standards of care and support. Based on the individual's needs, staff will provide a range of support which may include general supervision, support with personal care, supervision with daily activities and daily living, and encouraging social interaction; all centred around promoting independence, choice, integration and inclusion. Our aim is to encourage and empower people to maintain a dignified and high quality of life in their own homes, gain new skills and promote increased independence as early as possible, as to empower them further in adulthood. Our staff work closely with an expert team of professionals with many years of experience. Our unique model of care guarantees that the support is clinically effective, socially empowering and financially cost effective - the "CRTL" model. A&A offers supported living, supported housing, domiciliary, palliative support as well as emergency, short-term and long-term placements.
Whilst A&A does not provide the housing themselves, we are able to facilitate and assist in the sourcing of appropriate housing for any client needs. Working with a number of private landlords, A&A has a history of being able to successfully and safely place clients within appropriate housing that other organisations have often struggled with. We have been able to provide voids to Local Authorities for emergency placements, and also been able to turn referrals around within 3 days (from referral recevied, to client moved in and support commenced).
We specialise in supported living and domiciliary care for CYPs and young adults with learning disabilities. Our focus is to help those who have been in hospital settings or institutions for long periods of time, those who have experienced multiple placement breakdowns, challenging behaviours and those who are hardest to place. Our aim is to ensure that the revolving door situation of readmissions and broken down placements is extinguished. Our aim is to ensure a long term pathway to independence and reduced support.
Autistic Spectrum Disorder
A&A also specialises in providing support to people on the ASD spectrum. Our person centered approach ensures that those on the ASD spectrum have the appropriate support structure in place., that allows them to fulfil their likes and desires, but also allows for new skills to be developed. Support from families, mental health practitioners and staff trained in our CRTL model ensures that everyone at every level is included in the formation and continuation of the care.
A&A works closesly with Vital Healthcare, which itself was founded by mental health practitioners with over 60 years of combined experience. Using their CRTL model, it is a clinical care model that bridges the gap between the mental health care services and social living. Our care has embedded clinical input from our own mental health practitioners and we ensure that every aspect of someone's mental health needs are met. Any area we feel we are unable to meet, we do all that we can to then secure such support for our service users.
Using the principles stated above, our Domiciliary Care services makes you feel assured that you have the right support in place. Person centered, structured and with support from social services, the NHS and A&A staff, all care packages, not just domiciliary, are catered to the pathway of independence and long term well-being.
