Devon Support Service
This supported living service in Honiton offers purpose-built accessible accommodation for adults with a range of disabilities. We specialise in supporting and assisting people with sight loss to live independently in their own flats.
Greg (pictured) lives at Devon Support Service and is supported to follow Exeter City Football Club around the country:
"It takes some effort to drive me all the way from Devon to Nottingham on a Saturday. Who else would do that? I'm really happy with my support, nothing fazes them and it's just really good they are happy to do it."
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
Devon Support Service consists of eight individual flats and one twin occupancy, each with bedroom, living area, kitchen and either a bathroom or shower room. There is also a shared lounge area, and both individual and shared gardens. The property is exclusively designed and fully wheelchair accessible.
Devon outreach service
We also provide high quality and flexible solutions for people living with sight loss and other disabilities in their own homes in Devon. Our care is individually tailored and person-centred, and follows a thorough assessment of need and understanding each individual's aspirations.
Our experience shows that people can achieve their own personal goals given the right specialist support from appropriately trained staff who understand their individual specific needs.
We have a demonstrable track record of building successful partnerships with individuals, families, advocates, other providers, community resources and sponsoring authorities.
We are always taking referrals for our outreach services. If this interests you, please contact our referrals below.
