all in close proximity to each other and on the same floor. The five apartments
comprise the supported living service and are located within a larger development

own standard easy-read individual tenancy agreement with Complete Care Services
Ltd. Service users receive support from Tamarindo Care Ltd; this support can be
with any and every aspect of daily living. Out of the five apartments, one apartment
is designated as a support base where there is a member of support staff present

being present yet has the independence of their own front door. The support base
apartment is also used as a communal area where service users can spend time together/with
