Wellbeing and independence
Information and advice-
We will delivery monthly workshops for service users around health and wellbeing and we will provide more easy-read information on these topics
Active and supportive communities-
We will offer our hall as a space for holding community events to local organisations.
We will work with our partner organisations to organise events for LD Week
Flexible and integrated support-
Develop range of activities via zoom and SKYPE to engage people and encourage friendships during the pandemic and during the ‘new normal’
We will develop in-house key-worker specific training that includes ways to coordinate a person’s care and using person-centred tools.
When things need to change-
We will continue our work on ‘Dying matters’ – We will work with families and individuals, focusing on bereavement and how to support people with LD to understand the death of a family member.
All staff will attend training on preparation and support for end of life care.
We will also hold quarterly sessions for people where they can talk about and plan for their future.
Work with ILPD to update the Turnaround communication training which focuses on communication for those with complex needs
How we will co-produce and with whom
Have your say group will play a core role in leading on and assessing this work, as well as the group of family carers who we consult on this. The Have Your Say group’s members come from various support services within Independent Living/Housing and meet monthly. A Centre 404 staff member currently facilitates it.
Together these groups could work on producing a plan for the work and overseeing its implementation, once we know the starting point.
