Home From Home Care
Home From Home Care is a family-led company which provides specialist residential service for adults (17+) with complex needs, including Autism, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, PMLD, Sensory Impairment and associated health & mental health issues. Being parent-led, our main ethos is to promote independent living as much as possible by empowering individuals to lead fulfilled, happy and active lives. We are renowned for offering a high quality service which puts the people we support at the heart of what we do.
Created by Parents…
The service was created by parents, Paul and Ann de Savary, after they were unable to find an adult placement for their daughter Laura when she finished at a specialist college. They looked at 20+ care homes all across the country and none could live up to their expectations as parents for nice homely environments which put the needs and wants of Laura first, or support her to live as independent and active life as they believe Laura deserves. Paul and Ann, along with their eldest son Hugo, are completely involved in every aspect of the company, as their daughter lives in one of their micro-communities, along with children of other parents who they have a responsibility to provide the highest possible care they can. They have now opened 5 micro-community settings (of multiple different housing solutions on one site to create a dynamic environment which suits differing needs) and support 75+ individuals who are funded with us from 37 Local Authorities. This is an incredible achievement, which is a testament to the drive and passion of the family.

- Referral required
- Referral Details
Many of our placements are driven by families who recognise the uniqueness of our services.
Following an initial visit, the starting point for any placement is Social Services or, when relevant, the Health Authority. They, in turn, make a referral which is a request for an assessment.
Our comprehensive needs led assessment ensures we understand the individual’s needs and aspirations. The process involves meeting with family, school and any other stakeholders in the individual’s life.
Where we can meet an individual’s needs, the appropriate home is identified.
