About Care Of Younger Adults
Symphony Supported Living aims to assist people with Mental Health problems and Learning Difficulties to have a home of their own in the community they wish to live in. No matter what your difficulties may be, we can support you in the community as an alternative to a long term placement in a care home or mental health hospital. We currently provide services to the social work department in Dumfries and Galloway and support service users who are on Compulsory Treatment Orders out-with hospital settings.
By involving you in the provision of our services, we aim to ensure that you are happy in your home. You can be involved in choosing the staff who will be supporting you and all care plans will be tailored to meet your individual needs. Staff that are placed are also trained on your specific needs and will know how to respond when you have a crisis situation.
By working in partnership with our housing company we can find a place you can call Home- irrespective of your credit history, employment status or difficulties. Our model of working ensures that you wont be required to pay a deposit or rent in advance when you move in. Usually you housing benefits will cover most of the rent and service costs.
