Comfort Care works in partnership with Social Services, Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT) and Supporting People within leading Local Authorities across London and the South of England offering high quality supported housing for vulnerable adults who are:
- aged between 18-70 with recognised mental health needs and learning disabilities
- individuals recovering from substance/alcohol misuse and other complex needs
- individuals ready to be discharged from psychiatric wards
- vulnerable adults living in the community in crisis
- private referrals from GPs and families
To prepare our service users towards independent living, Comfort Care has a holistic approach which involves social workers, psychiatrists, GPs, care workers, advocates and their extended families.
Specifically, the services we offer through qualified and experienced staff, cover our three-tier 'move on' programme, high, medium, and floating (low level) support needs, from 24 hours a day to one hour a week. Additionally we also now provide intensive 1:1 support 24 hours per day.
We offer a one stop shop, "A complete solution to supported living" covering a full range of services:
Crisis Unit - Comfort Care Services manages small units where a person is able to stay for up to three days if they have a crisis in their own home. Their needs will then be assessed for suitable placement in hospital, residential care, supported accommodation or independent living.
Intensive Support – This is a service for high need service users who require one-to-one 24-hour support.
Respite Care – These projects provide short-term supported accommodation for people who may be temporarily unable to care for themselves at home, or giving a short break to carers.
Counselling and Therapeutic Services - We provide culture specific counselling offering emotional support, counselling and advice.
Rehabilitation in the Community – Comfort Care provides the ideal environment for rehabilitation, teaching skills to enable service users to live successfully in the community.
