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
Our in-house Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) can provide therapeutic and behavioural input on top of a person’s support as an additional resource once agreed individually and/or with the funding authority.
Input can range from clinical consultation; rehabilitative support for someone in crisis; support for complex assessments and transitions; resolving and reducing emotional and behavioural issues through positive behaviour support approaches; observing, training and mentoring support teams; right through to simply being on hand to give extra advice and guidance to our support teams.
Our specialised and highly qualified MDT includes a Clinical Director, Psychology, Occupational Therapy (OT) and Speech and Language Therapy (SALT). Our MDT work in conjunction with our support teams as well as internal Training, Quality and Risk Management and Operational Teams. We also work closely alongside external partners including Behavioural Specialists, Psychiatry, dieticians and fitness experts.
