Respite Care – the perfect solution if you need a little space to recharge your batteries and give yourself a well-deserved break from the tremendous responsibility of caring for someone with a mental health problem. Our supported accommodation is available for short stays, making it ideal for those who need confidential health if you become ill yourself, need to take a break yourself, either for just a few days or a longer holiday.
Our supported living facilities in Chingford and Walthamstow also make an excellent ‘half-way house’ to introduce those will mental health disabilities and who you are considering a long-term residential solution. A short stay with us allow you the opportunity to discover how both the person with mental health problems and also yourself respond and deal with full-time residential care. It can be a very difficult decision to make when you decide to pass full-time care of a loved one on to someone else, and with S&E Housing you have the opportunity to discover if this type of solution will work for both of you, but without making any long-term commitment.
Day Care – whether just for a few days or long-term, we are able to offer all the facilities available to our full-time residents to those who are with us on a day-to-day basis. This can provide an excellent solution for those of you who just need some time to themselves for a few days, but who don’t want to relinquish care completely for someone with a mental illness. Our support workers are highly experienced in helping those who have become socially isolated integrate with others and we encourage day care guests to mix with our full time residents while in our care.
With an emphasis on rehabilitation and empowerment, we are able to offer educational facilities and qualified support for those with mental health problems to help maximise their potential and regain in confidence. As a combined team we are able to work with the carers of those who come to us for day care to help create strategies and plans for personal development and growth, and we are more than happy to share our knowledge with you and to help you with your own caring routines.
Our day care support is available from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday, while we are able to offer weekend visits that will ensure that full care is provided, but without the educational support. As we charge by the hour for our day care support we are happy to assist with your needs, so whether it is just a few hours on a daily basis, or a full day at a time, we can adjust the care available.
