In some cases our clients live in Supported Living Placements. This means they live either on their own or in a shared house with others and receive a support package from staff working in shifts. This support could be on a 1:1 basis, or shared support. This type of support is typically 24 hour with staff either on duty throughout the night or “sleeping-in”, where they are off duty but on hand for any emergencies.
Other clients live in their own family home and our staff support them both in the home and out-and-about in the community to undertake activities of their own choosing.
Green Valley Care currently operates six Supported Living projects located within the Torfaen area from Cwmbran up to Blaenavon. These range in size from a shared house for six people plus satellite flat, down to a single person cottage.
We pride ourselves on supporting our clients to undertake a huge variety of hobbies and activities. These include: walking, hiking, gardening, volunteering at a local railway project, joining in a community choir, swimming, going to music concerts, holidays in the UK and abroad, going to the F1 Grand Prix, trampolining, going to the gym, cycling or assisted cycling, indoor rock climbing, horse riding, surfing, arts and crafts, cookery lessons, visiting castles and cathedrals, theatre trips, going to church, rugby internationals, attending mixed martial arts events and watching professional snooker tournaments. The opportunities are endless.
All this is in addition to normal daily activities such as shopping, medical appointments and attending day centres.
