For over a decade now, BHS have been trusted supported living providers in Bedfordshire. Our 4 properties in Bedford offer service-users the opportunity to live semi-independently in a secure and stable housing environment. BHS carers take a person-centred approach, encouraging residents to define their own goals, build meaningful relationships, and develop community-based skills.
The supported accommodation we offer is suited to residents who require a medium level of community-based support. It can also be used as a step-down service where people are coming out of residential care. BSH carers support residents in the acquisition of skills which will help anyone preparing for fully independent living.
Our trained carers deliver a range of personalised services, according to each resident’s care package. The number of hours available will vary from person to person. Each property is fitted with a free 24-hour, on-call service, and Wardens are on duty throughout the night.
