Our residential care services
Every single person living in our residential care locations has their own unique needs and aspirations. So every single home is unique too. We’re proud to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, dedicating ourselves to helping each individual to lead a rich and fulfilling life.
Our residential care across the UK offers places for people with complex care and support needs to live in welcoming, supportive and stimulating environments.
What is residential care?
Residential care is offered to adults living with complex conditions who require 24/7 specialist support to care for their daily needs and therefore cannot live independently in their own home. Each person has their own individual bedroom and there will be shared communal areas such as living room, dining room and kitchen.
We’re proud to support people who live with a range of complex conditions, including profound and multiple learning disabilities, autism, sensory and communication impairments, acquired brain injuries, complex behavioural needs and mental health conditions. Everything we do is tailored to the unique needs of each individual. And every single day we strive to provide extraordinary support. Nothing else is good enough.
Our approach is about building partnerships. And that partnership can provide exactly the support you need. From the moment you wake in the morning, throughout the day’s routines and social events, until the time you go to bed at night - we'll be here when you need us.
“It’s very nice here. Everyone’s so friendly. There’s helpful staff, and residents help with doing things. The garden is nice, I enjoy being outside working on the vegetable patch. Once in a while I go into town and I sing at a local church most Sundays.”

Our residential homes
Our specialist residential care is suitable for people who will benefit from 24-7 specialist support. Each home is designed carefully to keep the people we support safe and comfortable whilst helping them to build new skills, and so many of our homes contain adaptations such as sensory rooms and ceiling track hoists. Some of our homes also have the use of assistive technology where possible which further aids independent living.
Each home provides residents with the opportunity to enjoy spending time with others in the communal living spaces and kitchen areas, with the privacy of their own bedroom with en-suite wet room or bathroom facilities.
Our homes are located throughout the UK in city and rural settings, all set within the heart of communities meaning that they are close to local amenities and have excellent transport links. Each home complies with the regulatory requirements of the care commissions for England, Scotland and Wales.
“We encourage our residents to be independent, develop daily living skills and become active members of the local and wider community.”

How our process works
To move to a residential service, you will need to have funding in place. Contact your local council or GP who will put you in touch with a social worker to help get your support agreed.
Once your local council has agreed your support, you can then get in touch with Lifeways. One of our Referral Managers will then get in touch with you.
We'll arrange a visit in person to get to know you a little better. We'll talk about your current situation, support needs and also your short, medium and long term ambitions.
We'll arrange visits to our available services in your chosen location so you can have a look around and ask our team any questions you might have.
We'll create a support and funding proposal and send to your local council for approval - keeping you up to date throughout the process.
Once funding is approved we can set a move in date, and will be on hand to support you through the whole transition process to make the move as smooth as possible.
