Ms ‘F’ - Short term
MF (female) lives with her dog in a house in Blean, 3 miles
outside Canterbury. She has one bedroom upstairs that she is
offering for Short Term. She is happy to accept referrals of any
age or gender.
MF has worked with adults with learning and physical disabilities
for the past 9 years and is able to support a wide range of needs
including incontinence, challenging behaviour and certain medical
conditions. She is also experienced in using manual handling
equipment and whilst her own home cannot accommodate wheelchair
users, she is willing to provide support to someone in their own
MF enjoys her garden and the local countryside and would love to
share these interests with an Adult Placement person. She
would also like to help the service user increase their confidence
and develop their ability to do things on their own.
The ‘M’ Family - Short and long term
AM & GM live with their two sons, 17 & 20, in a
large bungalow in Cliftonville, very near to the coast. The
family has a young, friendly dog and chickens in the garden.
There is good access to public transport and all amenities in
Margate. They also have a large extended family who are very
much a part of their lives.
AM & GM already have one adult placement, a female in
her early 50’s who has hearing impairment. They have extended
their property and have two vacant bedrooms on the ground floor
that they would like to offer to adult placement. AM (female)
is currently the main carer, but GM would give up his full-time
employment to help support additional service
The sort of person they are looking for can be male or female,
aged over 30, mobile enough to be able to go out and about and be
happy to share their home with their existing service user.
AM & GM would like to provide long term placements, and
would consider short term placements, but not weekends.
