The New Independent Living Service
We are pleased to announce that we are adding an Independent Living Service to our offer. After consulting with our clients and their families we have identified that many are finding it difficult to access help that will support them with developing personal skills to meet their day-to-day needs.
To deliver this new service we have appointed Janine Davies. Janine has worked for 18 years with Staffordshire Social Services in supporting people with learning disabilities in a day service setting where she supported people with Independent Living Skills. Janine has a wide variety of qualifications including MAPA, an NVQ level 3 in Social Care and Health, City and Guilds living skills and Safeguarding. She has also worked in private homes and local authority accommodation where she was tasked to carryout spots checks on how clients were being supported.
This opportunity will be available throughout Stafford Borough and Cannock Chase District only and will operate from 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.
Beam will charge £20 (plus VAT) per hour. If a client requests a full day’s activity, we will charge £100 (plus VAT). We are happy to take clients who wish to pay through direct payments. The service would also be suitable for those who are in receipt of Personal Independence Payments.
What will beam do?
We have a wide range of activities that we will offer. This includes budgeting, money management, shopping, reading letters, responding to letters, help with domestic utilities, support at the GP or dentist, help with medication routines, learning to carry out general household task such as cooking and cleaning, help to access education and training, housing applications, support with IT skills and travel training.
