Supported Independent Living
Our homes are located in:
Two or three disability support staff are on hand in each home to provide individualised support on a 24/7 basis.
Staff actively encourage residents to participate in all aspects of life, to the best of their ability. For example, the resident who selects the evening menu will help prepare the meal.
Every attempt is made to engage residents in daily activities. These small steps build confidence, improve communication and enhance social skills. As a result clients learn to live more independently and better manage their behaviour.
Our skilled and qualified accommodation team use person-centred active support to encourage you to develop daily living skills that boost your independence and participation in local community activities.
Our plan identifies:
- What strategies will be put in place
- Who is responsible
- How to demonstrate the achieved goals
SASI’s approach is tailored to meet client needs. Residents are not made to fit SASI’s needs.
Residents can access the community and maintain relationships with family and friends.
