Organisation details

Oakwood Church, Livability

Organisation type: Voluntary or Community Sector

We provide homecare and independent living services for adults with learning disabilities in Taunton, Bath and Bridgewater. 

The supported living houses and individual flats are in beautiful central locations with good public transport links, very well maintained by private landlords, with your own room decorated to your specifications prior to moving in. 

There is a focus on peer support and friendship with staff trained in active support and inclusive communication to further enable you to be your own person and be part of things.

Some houses are for those who only need very little support with prompts and a well-being checking service, while others offer 24/7 care.

The service provides personal care with your dignity and privacy respected, all aspects of independent living skills including budgeting, opening mail,  cooking, shopping, laundry, recycling, medication management and keeping healthy, happy and active.

Everyone is different, thereby a person-centred plan consisting of enabling folders are put together with you and tailored to meet your specific needs building on your strengths first.

We have a regular and committed staff team to offer consistency, targeted timely support and who are highly skilled to assist you to self-manage any long term conditions that may affect you including behaviours that may challenge.

Livability is the disability charity that connects people with their community. Our inclusive projects and campaigns, educational resources, modern housing and support services are aimed at removing barriers and focusing on positive personalised outcomes.
