Radis supports many hundreds of vulnerable adults and children with all aspects of their daily needs so that they can live independently at home, where they most want to be.
Who do we support?
Radis supports people of all ages and with a diverse range of disabilities, conditions and level of need. Our common goal is to provide support tailored to the choices of each individual, so that they can lead the life they choose, independent, safe, healthy and of course without loneliness or isolation.
There are so many different people we support, with such a wide spectrum of needs, it would be impossible to list them all. However here are just a few examples of people we support and their different circumstances.
We provide this support across much of England and Wales, and in a wide variety of ways, tailored to each individual’s needs and circumstances, whether that’s a little support each day or more complex nursing care.
This can make managing day to day routines gradually more challenging and could lead to isolation and loss of confidence. A risk of falls may be more prevalant and looking after the home can become more difficult.
Radis supports thousands of older people to live independently at home, therefore helping people to avoid the emotional upheaval of moving to a care home or the risk of going into hospital.
We can support you or your family member in a number of ways, depending on individual needs. This can include:
• Pop in visits, or longer term care, even 24/7 or Live-in Care
• Wellbeing checks
• Personal care, including getting up, washing, dressing, going to the toilet, going to bed
• Safely moving around the house
• Practical support in the home such as cleaning, putting out the rubbish, shopping, and laundry
• Helping to prepare and eat meals

Radis has supported many people, often with just hours, days or weeks left to live, with compassionate, empathetic care and support. This ensures you are surrounded by your family and friends, respecting your wishes fully in your limited time.
Some of the ways in which we can support to make this difficult period more comfortable include:

We know that people with learning disabilities and autism experience life in a unique way and the level of support you require can vary depending on your needs. The impact of having a learning disability can also change through time as it is possible with the right support and guidance you could develop new skills and abilities.

We can support you by:
