Focus Birmingham currently provides a supported living scheme with Bromford Housing (Millward Place) in Kings Norton, Birmingham. The supported living scheme provides 24-hour care and support to adults who have a visual impairment.
The development consists of 14 self-contained one-bedroom apartments which have been specifically designed with the tenant’s specific needs in mind and to provide a safe and secure long-term home.
In particular, Millward Place has been built with a number of adaptations to support customers who have a visual impairment. Hand rails throughout the building, colour contrast of plug sockets, walls, kitchens and bathrooms to enable tenants with some vision mobilise safely around their flat.
Our staff strive to deliver the best possible support and receive a full training programme. Ongoing supervision and in-house training ensures that skills remain current and that the support we deliver remains consistent with best practice. In particular, staff are trained to understand the specific needs of our residents and to use specialist systems of communication where appropriate.
Our aim is to provide care and support to allow our residents to live as independently as possible. Day-to-day, our care support workers will help you in all aspects of your care needs, such as assisting with washing, dressing and personal care. Their role extends to supporting you in accessing the wider community, such as attending appointments and participating in social activities.
We have a strong focus on maintaining and building contact with family and friends and will offer you every opportunity and assistance to achieve this.
