Alternative to Care

FacebookTwitter Logo

We have two houses in Exeter that are provided for people who are accessing the Alternative to Care support service. One house is for four people and the other for six. Both houses provide outside space, a communal lounge, communal kitchen, communal bathrooms, are fully furnished and provide the person with a private locked bedroom.

Alternative to Care is for you if you are currently living in residential care and would like to take a step towards living in the community. Each house provides a homely environment. Most people receive an average of twenty one hours of support a week and so there is a member of staff or two around for most of the day. We are able to increase and decrease support as required.

Each individual has a named Support, Time and Recovery Worker who will meet you regularly on a one to one basis to help you identify a path and to support you in taking steps towards your recovery. Our Support, Time and Recovery Workers are there to enable you to deal with issues, develop social contacts, engage with the community and with your interests. We work closely with your Care Coordinator to ensure that we work together in supporting you to move forward.

To be referred to Alternative to Care please ask your Care Coordinator.
