In 2020, James transitioned from a care setting that brought many challenging moments, a residential home, to a life filled with independence, support, and meaningful activities. Living with Autism, Sotos Syndrome, and Epilepsy, James’s journey with Leaf Complex Care created many heart-warming moments of continuous improvement through compassionate care.
Hayden is an 11-year-old boy with autism and ADHD. Hayden’s family encountered many challenges in finding care where his needs and requirements are met and where compassion intertwines with expertise. Seeking help from social care proved inadequate in providing tangible support since the school he went to couldn’t meet his needs. Hayden’s parents attended courses to learn strategies to assist the process. Still, physical support for his behaviour was lacking, and things became even more challenging for Hayden, including the whole family.
This profoundly moving case study highlights the importance of the transformative power of the person-centred and comprehensive support Leaf Complex Care provides for Hayden, leading to an inspirational journey of positive progress and impact.
Jacob is a young boy who has been diagnosed with a brain abnormality which is associated with a learning disability and behavioural difficulty. Initially, he would get a couple of hours of respite care during the week, enabling his mother to study and change her career path. But the care and support weren’t proper, which led to many challenging times in Jacob’s and his family’s lives. As a dedicated provider of continuous and consistent care, Leaf Complex Care stepped in to address Jacob’s specific needs, aiming to create an environment where he feels safe and understood.

This case study highlights the importance of person-centred care through the story of Will.
Will is a 24-year-old man diagnosed with Down syndrome, a learning disability, and a speech delay, who had difficulty finding consistent support due to behaviour that challenges.

We’ve built a consistent, skilled, and close-knit support team around James, so we’re able to recognise his triggers, act accordingly and stabilise his behaviour.
For example, James can find verbal communication difficult or confusing, so we used symbols and created social stories to communicate with him. We’ve helped with his comfort eating by introducing daily pots of snacks (labelled with the days of the week). Also, we’ve reduced James’ anti-psychotic medication by introducing non-drug therapies and practical support, so he is less likely to need as much medicine.
