How can Cornerstones help?
When it comes to choosing the right support for a person, the most important thing to remember is that you have the right to make decisions on your own terms. Social services will be there every step of the way to support you, but it is ultimately a decision that you and the people who support you – such as friends and family involved, must be comfortable with. Cornerstones offers a range of services for people with learning disabilities, mental health diagnosis/ disorders, that you may find helpful. We would be happy to speak to you about specific support packages in further detail when you get in contact with us. By accessing the support options available, the people we support can progress through our care pathways, developing their levels of independence and understanding of their own condition. We believe that everyone, regardless of their diagnosis, has the right to the same life opportunities.
The types of services we offer include:
- Supported living
- Residential services
- Day services
- Support to access education and further education
- Support access to voluntary and paid work if and when appropriate
We understand that living with a learning disability, mental health diagnosis/ disorders, autism can make everyday life, a number of daily tasks and situations more challenging for individuals and their families. Our care pathways are designed to support those who live almost independent lives, as well as those who require long term support, Cornerstones is on hand to offer the support you need for the present and future.Â We take a person-centred approach so we can identify which areas of support will be most helpful to each individual, and will work with those that we support to ensure that their choices and goals are at the heart of everything that we do.
