Flat or house share

Individuals typically move into a flat or house share from care homes or family homes. There is a maximum of five people sharing any one of these homes – people with similar interests and round about the same age. Residents benefit from staff support during set periods of the day or week, depending on their particular needs. The community is a major focus too - using person-centred planning and detailed risk assessments, Yarrow’s staff research local opportunities so that people gain as much independence as possible, whilst ensuring that they are not expected to take on more than they can manage. Some people decide to stay in supported living long-term, while others use the experience as a transition into living independently in their own flats.

Yarrow’s commitment to value and choice means that, unusually in this sector, our fees are effectively “all-inclusive.” This means that the vast majority of Yarrow Plus services are included in the service contract, rather than being hidden extras. Whether someone wants to take up multi-media profiling during their first weeks of joining us or to join the numeracy and literacy project several years later, the opportunity  - not to mention the encouragement - is there.
