At FOLD we provide unfurnished apartments or bungalows specifically designed for older people and couples.
Our services have been developed to meet the housing and support needs of older people. Our services are designed to promote the quality of life and maintain an independent lifestyle in an environment that breaks down barriers of social isolation and promote overall well being.
A key objective of this service is to actively encourage residents to maintain their independence.
Each of our schemes has a Scheme Coordinator. The Scheme Coordinator's primary duty is to provide person centred housing support to each resident in a way that respects their dignity and confidentiality whilst promoting independent living.
To achieve our objective of providing a safe secure independent living environment, each property is fitted with an emergency 24 hour Telecare call system. When triggered this alerts either scheme based staff or FOLD Telecare Call Advisors who will respond and provide assistance.
Residents are encouraged to participate in the broad range of social activities within the scheme and also in the wider community through organised events and activities.
Each resident will have their support needs identified by the Scheme Coordinator through the process of Support Needs Assessment and will review the individual support plans on a regular basis. However a resident's support plan can be updated at any time depending on the changing needs of that resident.
