The Trust provides support to people living on their own, or with their families.
The type and frequency depends on individual requirements, and includes personal care.
Glenmore Trust sensitively and effectively supports people with a mental health diagnosis. This help is provided either in an individuals’ own home or as part of a support arrangement. The Trust works in partnership with mind at the lighthouse, which is a crisis service for people who may be involved in an emerging crisis and who are struggling to manage mental health conditions or are at risk of relapse.
A number of our service users live in their own homes, as joint tenants or home owners, yet require a comprehensive package of support and care.
The Trust works closely with these individuals and their families to ensure they are able to not only live as independently as possible, but to be an active part of the community.
The Glenmore Trust offers a superb respite facility, which is situated on the outskirts of the town centre in Penrith.
This modern four bed bungalow, is all on one level.
All Glenmore Trust support services provided in the community are regulated under the Domiciliary Care Agency with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
