Martin Simkin is the manager at 34 Longden.

Martin started working for Adelphi in 2009 which proved to be an exciting time for Adelphi Care Services as they had committed to providing community based care and support by linking its Supported Living service to the specific requirements of the clients who purchase their own care provision or manage their own tenancy. I joined as a senior support worker with the knowledge of the soon to be purchase of properties to provide a supported living service within the Shrewsbury area, for me this was the next step in my advancement within the care sector having previously worked at a residential college for young adults with Aspergers Syndrome.

The ethos was to facilitate greater choice and independence for those with disabilities, Adelphi Care Services support are engaged by the service users to assist them in the decision making process required of daily living; such as managing personal finances, planning what to eat, shopping and the organisation of daily and weekly domestic chores, organisation of bills and task, supporting and encouraging community access, employment opportunities, arranging and attending appointments. All support staff are trained in Person Centred Approach, thereby putting the people we support at the centre of the decision making process.

Since 2009 I have watched the people we support grow into confident and independent individuals moving from supported living into their own privately rented homes, I have seen the reduction in their support packages due to their increased skills and knowledge, form relationships with others, gain employment and overall have confidence and play an active role in their communities and society.
