Thousands of young adults across the country are getting excited at the prospect of flying the nest and beginning the next important stage of their lives – university. Though it is a chance to meet new people and experience something new, university can also be quite overwhelming, particularly for individuals with specific support requirements.
One of the major decisions facing students is accommodation, and for individuals requiring care, this is particularly important.
We recognise that choosing the accommodation that best suits you or your loved one’s care needs can be quite a difficult decision, but we are here to help you through this particular process. Liaising with the university, we can ensure that your accommodation is right for you, and we can also contact the relevant departments for you to make this process as smooth as possible.
For individuals requiring regular occupational therapy or nursing-led care, fitting this into your timetable and routine can be difficult alongside everything else, and we realise this can be quite stressful. This is why we are always on hand to implement a plan which can work around your lifestyle and social life. After all, we are here to make sure you get the best possible university experience!
Keeping the continuity is the next step. For example, you might be concerned about getting the support you or they need throughout the long academic year. But with Live-in Care, your Carer will be able to live in your accommodation with you to help you at any time of the day.
With our flexible live-in care service, you or your loved one can have the best possible university experience with the support of a dedicated Carer.
They will be on hand to help you with household chores and offer assistance with meeting those all-important deadlines, as well attending to your care needs. Not only that, but your Carer will also accompany you to meet new people and attend events, giving you complete flexibility and independence.
September is not far away, so if you would like to find out if we can support your loved one this coming academic year, speak to our customer service team on 0843 778 8927. In the meantime, why not have a look at this case study to see how we have helped students to have a fun and exciting time at univeristy in the past.
