Supported Living Service
The Supported Living Service offers support throughout the county for adults with learning disabilities over the age of eighteen with a variety of support needs.
We provide a high quality choice of flexible community based support services which focus on promoting people's independence and enablement at home.
This support includes help with personal care and practical support, ranging from washing, eating and drinking and administering medication, to shopping, cooking and access to community activities.
We are Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulated and inspected. We continually work to measure quality and improve our service standards.
The Supported Living Service is delivered from hubs in Guildford, Cobham and Banstead.
We offer support in a range of settings to suit individual needs and we can provide short term breaks for carers.
Listed below are some of the key roles in our Reablement Service, more roles and jobs can be found by visiting our search for adult social care jobs webpage.
Reablement Assistants work within the community, usually in peoples' homes, to promote independence and choice for people by helping them to work towards their reablement goals as set out in their support plan. This role will involve working closely with carers and others (e.g. Team leader and OT's) and in addition to meeting the person's needs, to try to prevent unnecessary admission to hospital or residential care.
Reablement Team Manager
The Team Manager is responsible for leading and managing delivery of a front line care service, taking responsibility for practice standards, customer service and quality, resources and efficiency, performance and processes. The Team manager is responsible for an area team covering two or three districts or boroughs.
Team Managers are legally required to be CQC (Care Quality Commission) registered for the Reablement teams, providing a professional lead and ensuring that the service complies with statutory requirements and national minimum standards for domiciliary care.
They lead, establish and maintain local joint working relationships with other service providers and partner agencies, making sure the views and needs of the people using our services are taken into account in the delivery and development of our services.
