Our approach

Sahara Care’s assisted living and supported living services in London and Essex encourage and support service users with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism and behavioural needs to take control of their life and the decisions that shape it.

Our approach

We work closely with each person we support, their family, friends, social workers and other stakeholders to create a support plan that the individual understands and is tailored to their needs, wishes and goals.

No two people are the same, so each support plan will be different, from the way someone spends their time day to day to the level of our support our trained and experienced staff provide.

An important part of the plan is to identify the service user’s individual goals – both day-to-day and on a longer term basis – and deliver the support to help them achieve these.

Gaining, maintaining and developing life skills underpin the journey towards greater independence. We support service users to learn and develop these skills individually or as part of a group, including through a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities.

We understand that needs and goals develop over time so we review plans regularly, updating them as required, to reflect evolving needs or changing circumstances.

By supporting service users to put their plans into practice, our staff positively contribute to their progress along the care pathway during their time with Sahara Care.
