Behaviour That May Be Described as Challenging:
Support to become as independent as possible and to fully integrate into the community
Behaviour That May Be Described as Challenging
We have significant experience of working with individuals who have complex needs with behaviour that may be described as challenging. Many of these individuals have transitioned from hospital or secure settings, or have had failed previous placements, and have been deemed ‘difficult’ to place.
These individuals are now being supported to become as independent as possible and to fully integrate into the community, with significant marked reductions in behaviour that may be described as challenging. This is achieved with support delivered by consistent and committed support teams who are highly trained, qualified and skilled in positive behavioural support, crisis prevention and enablement.
Sarah’s fantastic journey from hospital through to full independent living in her own flat in Hemel Hempstead.
Sarah, one of the individuals Precious Homes supported to move from a secure unit and into the community just under three years ago, received her last ever support session at the end of November 2016.
Individual Care Pathways
We use robust assessments and Individual Care Pathways, to promote transition into more independent living over time. Training for all team members includes Mapa; CPI Intervention, Physical-intervention techniques-without-restraint, RESPECT and bespoke training based on individual needs.
Our In-House Multi-Disciplinary Team
People we support can access regular therapeutic and behavioural input through our in-house MDT if this is agreed and commissioned in addition to their package of support. Our MDT focuses on increasing skills and independence, decreasing anxieties and therefore behaviour which may be described as challenging through effective communication, positive behavioural support and positive risk-taking.
