Supported living is a way of providing housing and support to help vulnerable adults, including people with learning disabilities, to live independently in the community.
Supported living arrangements are very flexible and are designed to give each person choice and control over their home and the way they live their life. Each person receives a package of support based on their individual needs.
The Sound Doctor: Videos about ageing well at home
Bite-sized, easy to understand and easy to watch videos about ageing well at home can be found through www.connectedkingstong.uk
Films by the Sound Doctor will help you to learn more about some of the main issues we all face as we get older. Once we understand why certain things happen, we can take steps to prevent them and improve our lives at home.
Sound Doctor films provide information about a wide variety of issues, ranging from falls to loneliness, to nutrition to alcohol problems.
The Sound Doctor mission is to improve the quality of life for people with long-term mental and physical health problems by educating them, their carers and their healthcare professionals about the most effective ways of managing their conditions.
You can find videos on a range of other long-term conditions on the services page.
