Our service is designed to provide accommodation-based support to the individuals looking to gain independence and continue their recovery journey.

Tailored, supported, living packages for service users with highly complex needs, including source appropriate placements, adapting environments, and training staff specifically around clients’ needs.
These are single or double occupancy placements with a higher staff-to-client ratio to support their needs.
These are single or multiple occupancy placements with floating or core support for service users who require less help.
At Symbiosis Care, we use the model of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) to assess a client’s behaviour and develop strategies to support them more effectively. Positive behaviour support (PBS) is a person-centered framework for providing long-term support to people with a learning disability and/or autism, including those with mental health conditions, who have or maybe are at risk of developing behaviours that challenge. It is a mixture of person-centered values and behavioural science and uses evidence to inform decision-making. Behaviour that challenge usually happens for a reason and maybe the person’s only way of communicating an unmet need. PBS helps us understand the reason for the behaviour as we can meet people needs better, enhance their quality of life and reduce the likelihood that the behaviour will happen.
We believe that people who present behaviours of concern should continue to exercise and enjoy the same human rights and freedom as any other citizen. Therefore, it should be managed in a safe and dignified way. Restraint reduction is best to be achieved by strong as well as visible leadership. We aim to develop staff in leadership positions to assert positive and proactive ways of work that promotes and uphold the human and civil rights of all those who use the services. It includes all the staff training that meets the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards (2019) delivered via accredited trainers. It’s a model that has a strong emphasis on Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) as an evidence-based approach to restraint reduction.
We provide comprehensive care, support and rehabilitation services for people with acquired or traumatic brain injury, stroke and other neurodegenerative conditions such as Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, early-onset dementia and Pick’s disease.
We offer long-term care and rehabilitation in a comfortable and supportive environment, working closely with the individual, their family and their support networks to create a personalised care programme. Focusing on behaviour, cognition and mobility, we offer assessments based on its key areas such as everyday life skills, cognitive skills and involvement in the local community.
We support and encourage people to reacquire practical skills such as cleaning, washing and cooking. We tailor support to individual’s needs and motivate people to maintain or increase their independence through therapeutic, leisure and social activities.
