Heathcotes Group: Tim Elliott
Chesterfield-based care provider, Heathcotes Group, has appointed Tim Elliott as regional manager for its supported living services in Yorkshire and Humberside.
Heathcotes Group provides specialist care for adults with learning disabilities and complex mental health needs.
Elliott joined Heathcotes’ supported living management team in February last year and has been involved in the regional development of the company’s supported living for service users who no longer require full-time residential care.
Elliott is experienced in working with adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs, and managed supported living and community support services in previous positions at The Wilf Ward Family Trust and the Avalon Group. In his new role, he will oversee operations in support of four general managers across five services in Wakefield, Bradford, Grimsby, Rotherham and Leeds. The accommodation enables individuals to make a progressive step down from a hospital or residential setting to a self-contained environment with 24/7 support available.
Elliot said: “I will be working with the general managers to maintain the quality of our existing services to the highest standard. Earlier this year, we completed our largest supported living development, offering eight new apartments in Leeds which have been widely praised by care professionals, families and commissioning groups. It has become a very successful model of care provision and I will be working with Heathcotes’ director of business development, Natalia Lysiuk, to expand our unique supported living portfolio across the organisation.
“Heathcotes’ supported living services are a separate model of care to our core residential services, but together they form part of a full care pathway, from full-time care to semi-independent living. Our support packages are tailor-made for each service user, focusing on encouraging and empowering them to recognise their self-identity and develop their independence. We support individuals who have progressed through their care pathway, but we also support individuals who require a single-person service due to their complexity and inability to live with others.”
Heathcotes says it provides living environments that closely resemble typical family homes. It has 72 services nationwide and offers a wide range of specialist support for individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome, autism, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, personality disorders, physical disabilities, Prader-Willi Syndrome, sensory impairments, speech difficulties and severe epilepsy.
