ABOUT GREEN PASTURES SUPPORTED LIVING SERVICES
COMPASSIONATE | RESPONSIVE | SUPPORTIVE
Green Pastures Care was established by Julie, who is the registered manager with a nursing background and years of experience of working for the NHS (CCGs) Clinical Commissioning Groups. Our service provides bespoke supported living to people with learning disability who transitions into adult services or those leaving residential care and wants to live in the community with support to be part of the community, gain independence and have the freedom to choose to live in their own flat at their own terms and with the support. We ensure that our service ticks all the boxes for right care and support, right location and accommodation and their rights to access their local community like any other citizen.
Having worked in both Acute and Community Nursing settings, as a Registered Nurse at senior level and in various Clinical Commissioning Groups as part of the decision-making panel for the commissioning of care in the NHS and Local Authority under the Social Care Act 2014, she believes that she can offer a service with a difference, taking into account the diverse needs of families with youths with learning disability transitioning into adult services; service users with autistic spectrum disorders with complex needs who need skilled support workers to meet their needs. We support people with learning disability from 18-70 years and those who are in residential settings, but now wish to live in their local community with support. Our ethos of care is to provide choice and independence and provide care tailored to each individual’s needs.
Julie has extensive experience having worked with Looked After Children (LAC) transitioning to adult service and most of them under Court of Protection and having to find the right placement where they would continue to be supported and feel safe and be a part of the community. She is passionate about the afeguarding of vulnerable adults and feels honoured to be in a position to provide a supported living service full of compassion and empathy to those who are not able to care for themselves or need support to lead as normal a life as possible with inclusion in their local community. She believes that every individual has a right to privacy, dignity and respect of their wish for a preferred place of care.
