We offer Short-Stay Breaks, Independent Living Programmes, Assisted Living Programmes and Day Centre Services, all with a range of bespoke and structured schedules. Citizens will access the Independent Living Programme, based on the Portland College campus, to increase their skills in all aspects of daily living. A programme is totally bespoke to each individual's needs and can include some of the following: − Personal Care Skills - developing a morning and evening routine, managing medication and hygiene skills. − Household Management Skills - cleaning, cooking, making a drink or snack and weekly food shopping. − Community Access - learning to travel independently using public transport, increasing social communication skills with support. As part of the programme, citizens are encouraged to access work experience placements along with supported access to the local community to such activities as a sport or fitness class.
