Blossom Lodge caters for clients who are unable to live by themselves so they can enjoy some independence but also have the security of knowing that they are not on their own and have the help they require with personal care etc when needed

 

 

At Blossom lodge supported housing we offer a positive environment where people’s unique qualities, strengths and abilities are properly recognised. For people who feel lonely or cut off from others, supported housing can provide a safe place to start making friends and building a better life. Blossom Lodge incorporates the five level outcomes of the supporting people National Outcomes Framework (NOF), ECONOMIC WELLBEING, ENERGY AND ACHIEVE, BE HEALTHY, STAY SAFE, and MAKE A POSITIVE CONTRIBUTION.

Blossom lodge supported living is where group of clients (5) share a house together. Each person has their own room, but shares living areas with the other people that live in the house. The communal facilities and culture of the house allow clients to get informal support from each other. Household chores are split so that communal areas are kept clean and cooking can be done together, or individually as desired.
