Elm Court

About
Elm Court is a supported living scheme for adults with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues. The property is a 4 bedroom bungalow located in South Benfleet, Essex and the property has been refurbished and adapted to also suit the needs of service users with physical disabilities. The project has been undertaken in a collaborative manner between all involved providers, service users and parents of the service users. This type of project is innovative and we feel that this type of collaborative working is the future of scheme set-ups within supported living. The dedicated staff and management team are highly experienced in managing challenging behaviours, mental health associated needs and complex needs. There are currently 3 male service users at Elm Court, with a slightly younger age range. Each service user has their 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.
