SRS is abbreviated for Supported Residential Service.
This is a low care home facility, when individual’s circumstances have changed, and they can no longer manage at home it is time to find alternative. That alternative is a supported environment that provides appropriate care and supervision in a friendly, home-like environment where it is safe to spend the next phase of your life. People need to make the move from independent living for many and varied reasons, it differs for everyone.
Common reasons are:
- decrease in physical ability, this could be mobility or an inability to look after their own care needs.
- the person suffers falls at home leading to repeated hospital admissions.
- a decline in memory leading to forgetfulness and the inherent risks this brings around the house and or getting confused or lost in the local area outside of their home.
- a person getting frail with age and with chronic illness lacking the ability to manage at home or look after their personal care
- social isolation associated with depression brought on by lack of independence in getting around
- medication issues, managing and properly taking their medications
- the loss of partner

The reasons people turn towards care in an SRS
As one aged the body slows down and deteriorate we cannot do what we used to and it’s very frustrating for the person and affects them and the family as a whole. The person needs to move to a supported environment where care and attention is available to provide the necessary service to assist the person and ensure they are safe, comfortable and as a risk free of injury as possible. We believe that it is important to maintain our resident’s independence as well as providing sufficient support to keep them as independent as possible.
