GALRO work with relevant authorities providing specific professional rehabilitation services to support a person in the development of independent living skills, social and economic integration and civic responsibility.
GALRO services are individual, needs-led and provide tailor made support and supervision to ensure the person and the community have a harmonious relationship which promotes community values and social ethics.
Our service supports service users with independent living, mentor support, outreach and day to day social and economic integration in the local community. This support is provided by a mentor who has responsibility for implementing a care plan which includes supervision, guidance and support with daily living and access to social and economic activity. The mentor also works with the service user to identify and access economic life, leisure, social life, vocational and educational programmes in the community, providing encouragement and practical support to engage the service user.
As with the day service, the service user is supported with independent living in their place of residence and are also supported with accessing and using mainstream community services. However, the emphasis in the evenings and at weekends is to promote social integration, leisure activity, sport and recreation, family attachment and general social gain.
The night steward supports a service user in their own home during night hours by assessing risk and taking action which include reporting to appropriate authority to reduce/eliminate risk to the welfare and safety of the service user and avert their involvement in anti-social behaviour. The night steward encourages and supports personal autonomy and reassures the service user.
This rehabilitation support service applies natural community based supports and mentor support in a mainstream setting with the concept of a vision of behaviour support and social integration.
Existing community based professional resources and support structures will be coordinated with additional needs-led support provided by GALRO. Mainstream community based activity of daily living/social activity is identified to promote practical skill development and social inclusion, while providing 1:1 supervision with specific behaviour support intervention.
