We are continually adapting to suit the needs of our service users, whilst ensuring we stay true to ARK's fundamental guiding principles and any updates to relevant regulations or legislation.
Below are some of the most recent changes we've made.
As of April 2013 - All people in receipt of community care services, or assessed as needing one, must be offered SDS before other options are considered. We are working with our service users to ensure they understand their options.
We have designed buildings specifically to suit the needs of individuals with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Through joint working with local authorities, families and other professionals, comprehensive assessments have been carried out to ensure service users have the right levels of support.
We are now in a position to deliver Autism specific services and are able to improve the lives of individuals through better housing and better support from well-trained, competent and confident staff teams.
Grange Care Home is situated in Grangemouth & was built/commissioned in 1990 in order to provide Respite Care at the level service users require, in order to ensure they are able to maintain their independence & continue to develop their skills.
Respite Support provided includes all daily living skills, personal care & social support. Short Breaks are provided utilising a flexible & person-centred approach.
Since April 2013, ARK have provided over 30 Service Users with the Short Breaks Service in 6 locations.
