Rivendell team have been supporting their newest person supported in transitioning to his new home. Kyle moved into Rivendell in the middle of July.
Kyle, with support, had made a plan on moving to a supported living service from residential and to become more independent. The team at Rivendell and Kyle’s previous provider created a person-centred transition plan with his input. Kyle has now been living at Rivendell for 8 weeks.
Kyle has starting to form professional relationships within Rivendell and picked his own Keyworker. Kyle planned his welcome party by choosing his own food and music genre to give other people supported and staff knowledge of what he enjoys. Kyle has expressed that his 5-year plan is to be living independently in the community in a house of his own. At Rivendell, anything is possible and they will be supporting Kyle with his 5-year plan.
Over the weekend Kyle celebrated his 25th birthday with the staff at Rivendell. The team surprised Kyle whilst he was out with his family. He returned to banners, balloons, a card from them all and a cake.
The team at Rivendell would like to welcome Kyle, and Kirsty the Service Manager would like to offer a personal thankyou to the team for making his transition possible, and for the extra support they have given to ensure he settles into his new home. Well done team Rivendell!
