Edinburgh - Midlothian
At Active Healthcare Services we focus on providing you and your loved ones with the support needed to promote independent living and maximising potential. We provide services across Edinburgh & Midlothian, West Lothian, Falkirk & Forth Valley and North and South Lanarkshire.
Our resource bases in Edinburgh, Livingston, Broxburn and Falkirk are designed to meet the needs of those on the autism spectrum, learning disabilities and complex physical needs.
Our flexible outreach service helps people on the autism spectrum to access opportunities and activities outside their home. This may include assisting people to take part in their favourite sport or to attend a college course.
Other activities and support offered includes:
- Literacy & numeracy
- Personal care & hygiene
- Budgeting skills
- Cooking skills
- Employment skills
- Health & well being
- Independent travelling skills
We also offer social groups which enable service users the opportunity to meet other people on the autism spectrum and develop social skills.
Granton Resource Base
This is our main staff base for Edinburgh services, which is well used by the people we support. We have a computer room for service users, set up with individual work stations for people to use, an art room where some great work has been produced, a chill room which has a sofa, tv, DVDs, game consoles, dart board etc. The base is fully accessible with a lift and disabled toilet. We are currently setting up some weekly groups from the base, ideas that have been suggested by service users include a social group, movie group, gaming group and art classes. We also have a small outside area which is used to do some gardening. We also have space to hold meetings and training events.
Our housing services help people to live as independently as possible in the community. Services can either be provided in your own home, or within specific accommodation such as supported housing. Housing support services provide a range of different tasks to support service users to manage their home, assistance with paperwork such as application for benefits and other claims forms, managing the household budget, keeping safe and secure, accessing support from other specialist services, and support with shopping and housework. The type of support that is provided will aim to meet the specific needs of an individual.
We can also provide support with personal care, such as help with bathing, dressing, eating.
We provide 24/7 care and support including waking nights and sleepovers.
