Strand House

Strand House is a Supported Living scheme which offers support to vulnerable adults.

The aim of the scheme is to provide a safe living environment for people who do not  require high levels of care, but for varying reasons are not yet able to live fully independently. 

 

We work intensively with tenants on their individual programs with the longer term aim of helping them move on to independent living as soon as is appropriate.

 

Once in local independent living we can continue to provide a service, through our outreach team, in their own homes with areas they still may have issues with.

 

Service Provision

 

The scheme is  staffed by an RMN led team who  carry out assessments, work with newly accepted referrals to complete the necessary benefit and housing claim forms, and to devise individual re-integration programs.

 

The staff will assess the needs of tenants in specific areas of the reintegration program including    social inclusion, budgeting  self   catering and mental health needs.

 

From the assessment a program will be devised with the tenant to help them gain more experience and confidence in areas where they need support. This can include:

 

  • Practical: budgeting, taking medication safely, preparing meals .

  • Emotional: staff are available for 24 hr support.

  • Educative, work and recreational: we are linked with local education providers, the job center and   voluntary services.

We can  support people in finding and engaging in social and recreational activities and provide support in returning to work or doing voluntary work.

Accommodation

 

The complex consists of 9 single self contained flats, situated in the center of Cromer around a small communal courtyard, with all local amenities within easy walking distance.
