Living Independently For Everyone (LIFE) is a personalised service offered to meet the needs of individuals in their own homes and in their own communities. We’re experts at designing and implementing flexible services for adults of any age with a range of disabilities.
Personalised Active Support
We work closely with you, your family and circle of support to ensure the best service possible. We can provide up to 24:7 one-to-one support for people with complex needs, recruiting the best possible staff to meet a person’s support requirements and interests. CASA can offer long-term, sustainable relationships between the individual and their support team.
The people that are going to be supported, and their circles of support are encouraged to be involved in the recruitment process. All staff are fully trained to meet the person’s specific health needs and thoroughly vetted, including The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and Independent Safeguarding Adults checks.
LIFE carries out person-centred planning with the person and their circle of support. Here, the team works alongside the person to identify what they want to achieve out of life, and the steps they need to take to get there.
We work with a network of social landlords and private housing providers; to provide fully flexible packages of housing and support to meet the needs of people as required. We have experience of supporting the transition process from residential care to independent living. Indeed, we like to get people involved in choosing what makes a house a home, including choosing the furniture, decorating/getting involved in selecting the decoration etc.
Living as independently as possible in the community means getting engaged within the community. A key role of the LIFE staff is to support people to pursue their interests through getting engaged in local community activities.
