Luke is supported to move in to his own home!
Luke, a 23 year old man with a learning disability from Swansea, moved in to one of the five self-contained flats within ‘The Laurels’ setting at Ty Hendy, an innovative learning disability service, based in Carmarthenshire in Wales, after his placement with a family in the community broke down.
Over time, the team at Ty Hendy supported Luke to develop independence skills such as managing his finances and walking to the shops on his own. 12 months on and Luke had gained the skills he needed to move back into the community to live on his own. The team then focused on supporting him with the transitioning process of moving into a supported living environment.
Since moving into his own home, Luke has been using all the skills that he learned at Ty Hendy and has continued to grow in independence which is very rewarding for the team who are all really proud of him and what he has achieved.
