Sometimes people approach us who may be looking for support with a family member or somebody they care for.
Sometimes they are going on holiday and need a break. Sometimes it’s a family in crisis. They just want some help in shaping this person’s life. Often they are not looking for a permanent residence but, after a given period and an improving situation, their feelings may change. We are very happy to help and will do all we can, but we won’t do anything without the say-so of the person who may be staying here.
We speak to them. We’re not trying to take over, simply looking for the right solution for everyone. Parents and carers can drive a situation and, if all goes well, they will be asked to refer to a GP, social worker or other professional. However, the view of our potential resident is critical and we will always move at their pace.
