Residential Care

Sense Residential Care offers round-the-clock support for adults with complex disabilities.

Sense Residential Care offers a place to call home for adults with complex disabilities. No matter what your needs, or how you communicate, our expert staff will be able to support you to live the life you want.

All our residents have their own rooms, and choose how they spend their time, with the reassurance of 24-hour care. Want to learn a new skill, go shopping or make friends? Sense staff will be there to support you.

What is Residential Care ?

People supported by this Sense service live in homes where care is always available, 24 hours a day. This can take some of the stress out of day-to-day living, by giving you help with anything you find difficult, and helping you to keep safe.

Moving into residential care is a big step. Some people consider it after they’ve tried other options, like community support or Supported Living

Frequently asked questions about Residential Care

What does residential mean?

“Residential” means a place that’s designed to be lived in. Sense Residential Care homes are places that provide support where you live, full-time. 

What is a care home?

“Residential care” and “care homes” are the same thing: places you live where you can be cared for, 24 hours a day. 

How much will my local authority pay for a care home?

Your local council might pay towards the cost of your care if you have less than £23,250 in savings and assets. Exactly how much they’ll pay depends on your specific situation. Find out more about funding on the NHS website. 

If you have any questions at all about finances and Sense Residential Care, speak to one of our team.

What’s the cost of residential care?

The cost of residential care varies depending on lots of different factors, like which home you’re looking at, and how much care you need. If you have any questions at all about finances and Sense Residential Care, speak to one of our team. They’d be happy to talk it through with you!

What’s the difference between Supported Living and Residential Care?

Residential Care is delivered in group homes, where you’ll get 24-hour care. Sense Supported Living is better suited for people who want to live a bit more independently. You’ll be a tenant of your house or flat, with responsibilities. But you’ll still get support from care staff.

How many carers to residents in a residential home?

This depends on the individual needs of our residents in each home. We assess the needs of everyone in our care, and make sure that they always have enough carers to support them. 

Is my disabled son/daughter/relative eligible for support?

Our residents all around the UK have a huge range of complex disabilities. If you’re not sure if your loved one is eligible for support from us, please get in touch with our team. We’d be happy to chat to you!
