Housing Support Workers link our residents to support services with the aim of enabling them to remain living in the community for as long as possible.The accommodation offered by ALONE is not sheltered accommodation and ALONE is not a direct provider of services.ALONE offers a responsive Housing Support Service which aims to sustain residents’ independent living and quality of life. Professional staff members develop support plans with those who avail of the service, based on their needs and interests.
Residents ask for support for a variety of reasons including when they are settling-in; if they are ill or need to spend some time in hospital; if they want advice about welfare beneﬁts or external support services; if they are lonely.
Levels of support are ﬂexible as individual needs change.
