Azim is living in his own home for the first time. Affinity Trust provides 24/7 support to Azim, who has never been happier. Before coming to Affinity Trust, Azim was described as having extremely challenging behaviour by another support provider. Before Azim moved to Affinity Trust, staff met with him several times to understand his preferences. They realised Azim had been unhappy in all his previous places as he was sharing, and he does not like sharing his possessions. His frustration from this, and the fact that his wishes had not been taken into account, led to some upsetting situations for all involved.
When Azim moved to being supported by Affinity Trust we ensured he had his own bungalow. As a result, Azim has never looked back. He is very proud of his home and is calm and content. There has been no repeat of the upsetting situations in recent times.
As daily strolls are one of Azim’s greatest pleasures, Affinity Trust made sure that those who support him must enjoy being outside, rain or shine. Azim now walks several miles every day with his support staff. He also takes part in football, goes shopping and enjoys writing.
Since Affinity Trust took the time and effort to listen to what Azim wanted, he is much happier than he previously was. He has an excellent relationship with his support team, and is out virtually every day doing something he enjoys. Azim’s family is delighted with how the move to Affinity Trust has worked out.
