Prepared internally, no external costs.
What accommodation exists for disabled or vulnerable adults that need to go into state funded long term care?
Is there sufficient accommodation existing, or planned to be built, to house the need for children who are coming into adulthood and require supported living without parental support.
How many long term accommodation units exist in total and how many are available ready for occupation.
How many units are planned to be built in the next five years?
This response has been provided by the Learning Disability Services section of Health and Community Services.
Adults that are assessed as requiring state funded long term care have two main options available to them. These are currently:
Six adults within Learning Disability Service hold a tenancy - four of whom have appointed delegates under the Capacity and Self Determination Law (Jersey) 2016 with two tenancies held by Jersey Property Holdings
There are five properties rented on behalf of the Learning Disability Service of the Government of Jersey from Jersey Property Holdings based on the persons assessed individual needs.
All Care Homes, Home Care and Day Care Services operated by the Government of Jersey are registered by the Jersey Care Commission under the Regulation of Care (Jersey) Law 2014.
Question B refers to children therefore does not apply to this response regarding to adults.
Please see response A above.
The existing homes are currently full therefore no vacancies exist.
It is anticipated that six units of individual accommodation are to be built in the next five years to support people with the most complex and intensive support needs. These provisions need to be bespoke to the individuals’ assessed needs with support delivered by the Learning Disability Service of the Government of Jersey.
