Long term placements
Accommodation with support and/or care is provided to people who need stability and continuity, and whose needs can be met by living as part of a family. Long term placements last for many years, and allow people to enjoy the opportunities and experiences that family or home life can bring.
Short term placements
Accommodation with support and/or care is provided by Adult Placement Carers for a specific time. For example, someone may live in an Adult Placement for a year to build confidence for more independent living in the future.
Adult Placement Carers provide planned breaks to Service Users and their families, or other Adult Placement Carers. Short breaks can be accessed by Service Users who want to experience different life styles or who just want a holiday.
Sometimes a person may require accommodation, support and/or care at short notice, perhaps in the event of illness or family crisis. Emergency placements are usually time limited and quite short.
Sessional and daytime services
Adult Placement Carers provide support and/or care from their own homes during the daytime, at evenings or over the weekend on a sessional basis.
