The Mews is a new community supported living service providing outcome focused care for young adults living with a learning disability and associated complex needs who may have behaviours that challenge.
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 as they wish.
Ongoing assessment and high staffing levels means that we are able to meet each individual’s changing needs as they progress through their care pathway, while ensuring their safety is maintained and their independence supported.
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.
Developing self-care and daily living skills is a core part of life at the service. The management and staff team have comprehensive training, including all mandatory training and bespoke training specific to the needs of the service user; this includes Positive Behaviour Support, Ethical Care (restraint reduction and safe management of aggression), Safeguarding, Food safety, First aid, Autism, Mental Health, Mental Capacity and record keeping.
