Jamie* moves on

 

Croc LFFF 052 Web Size

When Jamie first came to live at Ranaich House he was a man who struggled to express himself in a way that others appreciated. His life experiences were limited to what his small home town could provide. His main life goal was to have his own flat in a town nearer his family.

Whilst at Ranaich House, many opportunities opened up for Jamie:

  • He wanted to learn to read; the team at Ranaich House assisted him to attend literacy classes.
  • He wanted to get fit; Jamie was supported to join the gym.
  • He asked for a programme of care which promoted his independence; the team at Ranaich House worked hard to make this happen.
  • He needed to be with his family; Jamie was supported to maintain these important relationships.
  • He had never had a close circle of friends who were not paid to be around him;  Ranaich team have facilitated him meeting new people whom he now refers to as friends

Through hard work, a person centred approach and positive attitude, Ranaich House have helped Jamie to get the things he wanted in life with great humour and personality.

Jamie has now moved on from intensive support in the main part of Ranaich House and is now living in the Coach-House.  Here he is learning all the domestic skills required to lead a more independent life.

We fully expect Jamie to be able to move on to the next step in his care pathway by securing a tenancy and receiving visiting support.
