Additional Information

Ardaveen Manor provides long term housing support to 11 individuals with learning disabilities in Bessbrook. The care/support and housing support is tailored to meet the needs of each tenant. A support plan is developed in partnership with the tenant to identify the areas of care/support required to maintain their tenancy.

Staff will consult with the tenant and/or their representative in all aspects of the service provided to them within their home. Tenants and/or their representative will be consulted in relation to any new tenant wishing to live in their home.

There are now 2 houses with 3 individuals in each and 1 house with 4 individuals in Ardaveen Manor, in single occupancy ensuite bedrooms, sharing communal areas, eg; kitchen, dining room, living room etc.

The aim of our service is to provide individuals with a learning disability with support to be an ordinary citizen of society. Staff will support individuals to become tenants of their own homes and maintain their tenancy agreements. These agreements sets out the responsibilities of each tenant and specifies their financial obligations in line with any ordinary tenancy (paying rent or getting housing benefit, paying household bills such as; food, electricity, oil, telephone, transport and items specified in the agreement).

Staff will support tenants to access their full entitlement to benefits and to manage their monies through opening bank accounts and budgeting for daily living. Staff will support the tenant to have a safe and homely environment, in which a person-centred approach is promoted as a way for people with learning disabilities to explore and be supported to pursue the lives they wish to lead. Tenants will be supported to engage in activities which are meaningful to them and be active participants in their local community as well as ensuring appropriate access to health and well- being services when required.
