Les Amis’ domiciliary outreach service supports people with an existing high level of independence to continue to live in the community with minimal staff support.
We encourage our domiciliary outreach clients to participate in community activities and empower them to acquire the life skills they need to flourish and thrive as independently as possible. This may include support with cooking skills, medication, budgeting and access to work placements. Many of our domiciliary outreach clients are employed by Les Amis within our Gardens and Recycling teams.
Not only do Les Amis support and work with clients within our domiciliary service, we also offer bespoke packages to adults and their families in order to support them at home and within the community.
Enabling people to live independently means advocating independence; sometimes it's the simple tasks that we may take for granted that someone with a learning disability may find challenging. With support from Les Amis our community outreach clients and families can benefit from a highly skilled team of support staff whilst remaining within their own environments.
Les Amis’ community short breaks provide high quality care to children and young people aged 5 – 18 with mild to moderate learning disabilities or associated conditions. The service tries to meet the needs of each child or young person to make sure their short break is an enjoyable and positive experience.
Les Amis work closely with parents and carers to encourage open communication and provide a package of care that meets the needs of the child and their family. We also work closely with other professionals to make sure that we are contributing to an agreed and co-ordinated package of care.
This is a bespoke service based on individuals needs. It offers time for parents and carers to recharge their batteries whilst their child or young person spends time in a safe, welcoming environment where they can socialise and get involved in positive activities. These activities could include developing skills, swimming, walks, sports and youth clubs and a whole lot more depending on your individual requests.
Helping people to fulfil their potential is fulfilling in itself, which makes working with our residents deeply rewarding. If you’d like to find out more, just fill in the boxes below and upload your CV. We’ll then be in touch.
