Buckinghamshire Support Service
This supported living service in Aylesbury offers purpose-built accessible accommodation for 14 adults with a range of disabilities. We specialise in supporting and assisting people with sight loss to live independently in their own home.
We aim to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do.
Our support enables people to make choices and express their individuality. Personalisation is not a tick box exercise for us, but is fundamental to how we deliver our mission every single day of the year.
Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team
Our Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team includes qualified Vision Rehabilitation Workers (sometimes also called 'ROVIs') and Behaviour Consultants with at least a Masters degree in Applied Behaviour Analysis.
The Vision Rehabilitation workers play a vital role across SeeAbility and keep front and centre, SeeAbility’s commitment to supporting those with sight loss, as well as those with a diagnosis of learning disability or autism.
Where funded, Behaviour Consultants assess each person’s needs by completing a functional assessment, ongoing monitoring, and support. They use this to develop people's person-centred support using a Positive Behaviour Support framework.
The Clinical Assessment and Intervention Team aim to increase individuals' quality of life, reduce unnecessary restrictions and teach functional skills. This means each person we support gets exactly the right kind of expert attention they need, when they need it, so they can make more choices about what they want from life every day.
Supported living services are designed to meet daily living, social and personal care needs. These are arranged through a combination of one-to-one and shared support hours.
Our facilities and accommodation
The communal areas of the property are furnished and equipped. The rooms are offered unfurnished. They have been designed to enable easy access for people who have a visual impairment, making good use of colour and texture contrasts in décor, tactile information and lighting.
The property consists of 14 rooms arranged over two floors. Each floor is comprised of seven individual rooms with an accessible en-suite wet room, specially designed communal laundry, lounge, kitchen and dining areas, and a shared assisted bathroom.
Every room is equipped with a phone point and connection allowing each person to arrange for their own phone and internet access.
The property has a lift and is fully accessible for people who use a wheelchair. All rooms allow for tracking and hoisting equipment to be installed if needed. There's also additional staff and training facilities on the upper floor.
