The Alternative
Offering individualised support to maximise peoples quality of life.
The Ark offers affordable independent support for people during the week, evenings and weekends. All support is linked to individual wants rather than group needs and includes activities they wish to do (there may be a charge for this dependent on the activity).
The support will be given by experienced support workers and the person will be able to choose who supports them on specific activities.
We will also prepare, with the individual, a Person Centred Plan (if required) to enable them to reach some of their goals in the future. These will be fed into the annual reviews and other meetings where necessary.
Dependent on the number of hours or days support some activities will be included in the cost of provision leaving more budget available for the person outside of Ark support time.
Support provided ranges depending on individual needs and can include:
  • Transport to and from home
  • A variety of weekly activities agreed through the clients’ support plan; this has included horse riding, swimming, bowling and visits to cultural and leisure attractions
  • Training to increase independence, such as cooking, food shopping and improved health and wellbeing
No personal care or medication is delivered which means it is outside of the scope of registration with the Care Quality Commission.
