Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

We support our residents to attend family events and visit home. We will work with the resident and their relatives to ensure risks are managed and that everyone is supported.

Can friends and families visit?

We have an open door policy, and family and friends are welcome to visit and participate in activities at the service, 7 days a week. Unfortunately we cannot cater for visitors to stay overnight.

Will I be involved and kept up to date with the progress of my loved one’s care and support?

Yes - we strive to keep the loved ones of our residents involved in their care. We will arrange regular meetings with families to ensure they are kept informed.

Will my loved one be able to have a phone or call me?

Our home has a phone line, which can be used by residents at any time. In addition, we can support our residents to get and use their own mobile phone.

What type of things are families expected to provide, and what is provided by the home?

Every bedroom will have a bed, bedding, and basic furniture, such as a chest of drawers or wardrobe, and bedside table. Meals and snacks are provided by our catering team. We expect families to provide clothing for their loved one, and room items such as additional décor or a television set.

What are the bedrooms like?

Bedrooms all have en-suite facilities and come furnished, and residents are supported to personalise them to suit their needs and wishes. However, some of the furniture has been purchased to suit the needs of the service specification and some of it is fitted, and therefore cannot be removed.

Are external doors kept locked?

Yes, external doors are kept locked to keep everyone safe. We do have a secure garden and courtyard area which residents can enjoy freely.

What do residents eat and how do meal times work?

We have a catering team who prepare meals three times a day, and snacks are available at all times. Residents are supported to choose what they want to eat at mealtime, and there is always a choice available, as well as easy-read menus. Our team will also seek guidance from family members and nutritionists to ensure that special dietary requirements are catered for.

How does laundry work?

Our team will ensure that residents always have access to clean clothes and bedding. We have industrial laundry facilities on-site, which our team will make use of on behalf of our residents.

Is there anything they can’t bring or have?

We would ask that residents do not bring valuables, such as family heirlooms, as we would not want these to get lost. We may place restrictions on some items where the risks cannot be appropriately managed, such as scissors.

Are pets allowed?

No, unfortunately we cannot support live-in pets.

How do activities work?

Every resident has an individual tailored activities planner. Our dedicated activities co-ordinator organises a variety of activities, with input from residents. This includes both in-house activities as well as visits outside of the home.

Do residents and families have an input into the care plans?

We work with social workers, family members and residents to develop care plans which are in the best interests of our residents. Care plans are regularly reviewed, and family members will be asked for their input.

Abbey Court has car parking facilities.

What is the smoking policy?

Residents can smoke by the designated smoking area outside. We don’t permit smoking inside the building, and this includes vapes.

What are your fees and how are they funded?

Our fees can vary, and are based on an assessment of each individual's needs. We accept the following funding types: local authority funding, local authority funding and top up, NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding, and private/self-funding. Please note, referrals for NHS or local authority funded services must come from a referring organisation. We recommend contacting your local social care team to attain a referral.
