Helping people live independently through person-centred support and community-based living
Here at Liaise, we understand the unique support required by people living with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS). We offer a range of specialist care and support services that allow people with PWS to make their own choices and decisions with the consistent physical and emotional support they need to lead happy and healthy lives.
Our residential and supported living services are so much more than just a place to live. Our dedicated staff work hard to foster nurturing and welcoming environments that promote not only personal growth and positive communication but fun and enrichment as well.
We recognise that living with Prader-Willi Syndrome can make certain aspects of day to day life challenging and we’re here to provide unconditional care and support. Our multi-disciplinary teams are extensively trained in supporting the unique challenges of PWS including the safe provision of nutrition and hydration.
We strongly believe that with the right support and a welcoming community environment, people with PWS can maximise their potential and lead full and happy lives.
Our Residential and Supported Living Services
Within Liaise we provide a range of diverse residential and supported living services, all with unique design features and layouts. The goal of each of our homes is to provide a warm and welcoming environment that encourages people to develop rewarding relationships and learn independent living skills.
Each home provides varying levels of support depending on the needs of the people that live there. We encourage each individual to enjoy as much independence as possible with the reassurance that extra help is always available.
Our approach is always guided by the principles of “person-centredness”. This means the support we provide is always based on the specific needs, desires and ambitions of each individual.
Some of the services we provide include:
- Daily activity programmes tailored to the capabilities of each individual
- Environments that are carefully adapted to meet the needs of the people that live there including food security
- Support in finding employment, education or volunteering opportunities, where appropriate
- Through opportunities and with guidance, we help each person to develop relationships that are meaningful to them
- Outings and trips into the local community
- Regular social events, both in home and in the community
- Support that enables the growth of practical home-focused skills such as cooking, housework and decorating.
- Each person is supported within a person-centred framework, to develop their community skills such as shopping, banking and the management of health appointments
The Liaise Approach
Due to the wide range of wonderful personalities that live there, each of our homes is unique. To help find every person their ideal match, we always consider the goals, interests and ambitions of each individual. This allows us to provide bespoke guidance to every person as they are choosing a home that compliments their lifestyle.
Through many years of experience, we know that generalised support plans simply don’t work. By recognising that people are not all the same and celebrating these differences, we create individual support plans tailored to the unique personality of each person we support.
All support plans are reviewed in partnership with the individual to ensure they are meeting expectations and outcomes. Where appropriate, we welcome families, advocates and friends to contribute to this review. We recognise each person’s circle of support is different and this is always reflected within the support frameworks that are built.
Our Quality Standards
Here at Liaise, we are very proud of the high levels of support our services provide. Our commitment to quality is reflected in our outstanding outcomes and improvements to the quality of life of all the people we support. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commision and are proud to have achieved an outstanding CQC rating not once, but twice in a row for one of our services. Two of our other services have received an outstanding outcome in one of the five areas as well.
