This UpSkill workshop, brought to you by the Summer Foundation, takes a systematic approach to moving, including supporting people to build their skills, making community connections in their new neighbourhood.
This is an interactive workshop and there will be practical exercises, group discussion and opportunity for questions and answers.
For many people we support, moving to a new home is more than a roof over their head. It is a new start and an opportunity to start living a good life. having choice and control, and being active in the community.
Why you should attend:
There is a lot to think about and remember when you are assisting a person to move into their own home. Our comprehensive checklist -everything but the kitchen sink – will help guide you and the person you support through the process, so that nothing is missed. An optimal transition will help people settle in well and get on with living their life in the community.
What’s involved in moving, making a plan and timeline
Building capacity before the move
Equipment, AT and home mods
Building the support team – person centred approaches to developing a sustainable support model, including SIL, ILO and daily living supports
Developmental safeguards and community connections
Contingencies and short term solutions, when things don’t go to plan
Who is this for:
