Individual Life Designs Plan
Individual Life Designs are personal authoring tools we use to help us specifically tailor your support. They are ideal when they are facing circumstances that involve change, for example someone leaving home or a hospital setting.
Whatever the focus, we know stability is key, as is self-discovery and the Individual Life Design will discover a person’s requirements, as well as their gifts and capacities. their community and relationships and be grounded in the belief that people themselves and those that love, know and care about them are best placed to figure out what a good life is.
This is a time for discovery (not assessment). More importantly the plans created are highly detailed and include looking at the type of property, adaptions, living arrangements and the amount and type of support required.
Our ILD Plans allow our staff to use their specialist knowledge to confidently discuss the needs of the people we support, with a good level of understanding of our client’s, goals and needs. Our staff will identify our clients’ likes, dislikes, interests, personality traits and lifestyle choices.
Focus On Strengths Plan
We focus on strengths as an important step toward creating a more positive pathway to independent living. There are three specific reasons why a strengths-based approach leads to higher levels of engagement and effectiveness:
Increased positive emotions
A major benefit of focusing on strengths is the impact that applying strengths has on positive emotions. When people are using the abilities that come naturally to them, they experience satisfaction, joy, fulfilment, and pride. In fact, simply discovering what their unique strengths are gives people emotional satisfaction. So, helping people to identify their strengths and giving them the opportunity to do what they do best has a direct impact on their positivity.
Greatest potential for success
Another reason to adopt strengths-based technique is that people’s greatest opportunities for success come from using their strengths. The same effort it takes to improve a weakness just a little bit can improve a strength significantly more. People become successful by capitalising on their strengths.
A final reason to emphasise strengths is that focusing on weaknesses can actually undermine people’s strengths. Trying to improve a weakness leads to negative emotions and lower self-confidence. Lower self-confidence in one area of someone’s life will eventually spread to other areas. People feel worse about themselves in general and start doubting their potential even in areas where they have strengths.
We help all people who use our services to identify their strengths and make an effort to match their strengths to assigned tasks by discussing what they are doing well and working out how they can do more of it.
Our ethos, vision and mission embraces independent living and we believe that all individuals have the right and responsibility to live as independently and safely in the community as possible.
We support individuals to make informed choices, to take positive risks and to fully integrate into the community.
