At Mark Gray Associates we are proud to have 15 years experience of case management and personalised support plans for people with Learning Disabilities, Autism, & Acquired Brain Injuries.
We specialise in three key areas of Case Management.
Since the government announced the ending of long term use of Assessment & Treatment facilities for people with autism and learning disabilities, following the Panorama programme on Winterbourne View in 2012.
Mark Gray then Interim CEO of ARCUK was one of the professionals along with David Abbey of My Safe Home who gave evidence to the enquiry as part of its outcome planning which has resulted in the HOLD Process.
Setting up and liaising with clinical teams, housing associations and housing professionals, care providers and families to make successful transitions. It is fair to say the complexities of the process and peoples individual needs, which are often very complex. Results ,in a process that can be anything, from 18 months to up to three years.
However, the end result is often so rewarding, it is well justified when it goes right. At Mark Gray Associates we pride ourselves on listening to the needs and wishes of the clients we support and make them central to the planning process. Examples include being able to buy Lotto tickets easily or having somewhere in walking distance from which to go fishing.
If you have a relative in long term Assessment & Treatment and you would like support to help them into a new way of support or you are a commissioner in Health or Social care and you are looking for an independent care co-coordinator and specialist Lead Nurse please contact Mark direct from our contacts page.
HOLD is a relatively new process and is designed to enable people with Learning disabilities or Autism to have their own home in conjunction with a housing provider, a specialist mortgage provider, and a bespoke care support team. It is known also as the third party model.
At Mark Gray Associates we are currently involved in a project with a young man with severe autism in the process of leaving his parents home to have his own Bungalow close to his recently established day service.
Our client Chris is already a social media star and is committed to talking to nurses and the public about his life and his difficulties using a special communication method known as Rapid Prompting Method or RPM.
Mark Gray Associates are working alongside his family, his clinical teams, his advocacy and RPM Support , commissioners, housing and mortgage specialists and his care providers to enable Chris to achieve his dream to be independent in his own home.
This will run along side longer term case management and personalised support with a care provider.
