The Mews is a community supported living service providing outcome-focused care for people with diverse and complex needs with a learning disability and / or with autism.
The Mews, which is based four miles away from Leicester City centre in the small town of Syston, offers accommodation comprising of two separate bungalows with enclosed outdoor garden and homely environments. Both bungalows have en-suite accommodation and the individuals we support are encouraged to personalise their home as they wish.
The key factor in our model of care is progression with continual assessment of needs and individual objectives empowering people to live as independently as possible.
Regular review meetings involving the service user, their family and professionals are held to review outcomes, set new goals and re-assess support levels as individuals progress.
Our care model uses outcomes measures, risk assessment frameworks and holistic assessment tools to establish the fundamental needs of the person’s characteristics and behaviours which are then input into our integrated electronic records management system – Person Centred Software. This enables us to provide comprehensive reports on individual progress against the key personal targets on actions taken, support given, as well as providing strategic management information on the key outcomes achieved.
