Having independence in your life creates a sense of liberation and freedom. It starts in your home and can be developed in any number of ways. We work with you to create tools and strategies so you can move along the path to grow your independence and freedom.
In your home
We’ll work with you so you can better manage your own house; do some forecasting on how much money you need and creating some budget strategies. Advancing your reading and writing skills and learning about your house and rental arrangements. Build skills in the care for your house, cleaning and maintaining, and looking after your clothes.
Creating skills for a healthy lifestyle – planning the food you eat, going to the supermarket, cooking and cleaning, and developing good hygiene habits.
We can also work with you to create healthy routines around activities like swimming, going to the gym or doing regular exercise.
Planning, booking and going on holidays is such a thrill. We can help you get all this going, we can even organise people to go with you.
Getting out into your community builds your independence and confidence and can start to strengthen your ties to the community. We can be there to help with creating relationships, friendships and groups. Foster and develop skills in presenting yourself in communal situations, eating out with friends and joining local groups or drop by community centres.
Getting out and about
Independence also extends beyond the home, we’ll ensure you stay safe when you’re out and about while building your confidence to use the roads or public transport, keeping in contact with people in your community and building skills on how to get there.
