We provide high levels of support for individuals in a residential, supported living and domiciliary environment. We also offer a day centre at one of our supported living homes. Having provided these services for many years we our confident in our ability to provide the highest quality care.
Supported living means having care and support in your own home. Our support is built around the individual.
Residential care is where the individual will live in a residential setting rather than their own home.
What is supported living? Supported living means having care and support in your own home, or with your own tenancy. This is different to residential care, as the support is built around the individual, rather than an individual fitting into a service setting.
Before anyone moves to supported living their needs are assessed and support hours are commissioned by the funding authority (normally the local council or CHC) based on these needs. It is also possible for a person to commission and pay for their own support, should they choose to do so. Individuals have the right to choose the care provider. Once this is agreed they are then supported, based on the assessed hours required to achieve the outcomes identified in the assessment.
There are various residential care options available which will depend on the needs of an individual. People with disabilities, mental health, learning difficulties, Alzheimer's disease, dementia or individuals who are frail aged are often cared for at home by paid or voluntary caregivers, such as family and friends, with additional support from agencies. If home-based care is not available or not appropriate for the individual, then residential care may be required.
Adults may be placed in residential care if they are deemed to be unable to care for their daily needs and need long term care to be given. Residential care is where the individual will live in a residential setting rather than their own home or family home. We have highly trained staff working within our residential homes who provide personal care, domestic tasks, accessing the community and some individuals can visit our day centre service at our sister home.

Domiciliary care is provided to people who live in their own homes but may require support with things such as personal care, household tasks and activities. We help the individuals maintain their independence and their quality of life.
Currently within knighton manor care services we have two bungalows situated to the front of Holmwood gardens, a bungalow further into Glenfield and a house just around the corner from Holmwood gardens that our staff visit and provide support. We support people with a different range of disabilities providing personal care, going into the community, daily living skills and support with going food shopping.
