Older Adults with Learning Disabilities
Many of the people we support fall into the ‘older’ age group. We are recognised for our specialist support to people with learning disabilities and dementia, and our ability to provide palliative care. High support Registered Care services and floating support on an outreach basis are combined with specialist training to deliver high quality, tailored support either in assisted living or independent living.
PLUS provides specialist services to people with complex health needs, challenging behaviour, sensory and physical disabilities and autism. We work towards delivering independence for every service user through a tailored combination of outreach, supported living and floating support. We support people to develop skills and achieve their full potential.
Our supported leisure services range from gardening and keep-fit to arts and crafts, and we arrange social group activities such as bowling and rambling. Short breaks and supported day trips are organised as part of a group or for individuals. We support individuals to access local facilities and meet local people, including matching individuals with like-minded volunteers to facilitate this.
We offer support to develop employment skills, including supported employment in Pretty Little Cupcakes, a social enterprise operating from a coffee and cake shop in Penge High Street and support to access open employment. People also attend
our popular cupcakes workshops where they are supported to make and decorate cakes. We also offer ipad workshops for people with learning disabilities where people can learn about the range of things they can do on a tablet computer.
