Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

We support all residents to attend home visits as and when they would like to.

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. Unfortunately we cannot cater for visitors to stay overnight. Please let us know in advance if you would like to eat with your loved one, and our catering team will make accommodations.

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 have an online group where we share good news and stories of all our residents, as well as communicate site updates.

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

Our service has two incoming phone lines and we have a dedicated reception team who will be able to facilitate calls with your loved ones. Residents are welcome to have their own mobile if they so wish to.

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 are all 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, the service is kept locked. Where appropriate some residents may know the key code, this is done on a risk assessment basis to ensure we are keeping everyone safe.

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. This would be in line with the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) guidance.

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 take care 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 to our home, as we cannot guarantee their safety. We may place restrictions on some items where the risks cannot be appropriately managed. For example, scissors, medications, and razors may be banned from our dementia unit.

Are pets allowed?

No, unfortunately we do not allow live-in pets.

How do activities work?

Our dedicated activities team plan a schedule of activities for the home to ensure each resident has catered for needs to ensure they live a happy and fulfilled life.

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. We use a variety of communication tools and work with health professionals to aid each resident in having a say about every aspect of their care. Care plans are regularly reviewed, and family members will be asked for their input.

What are the car parking facilities?

Cooper House has a large off-road car park on-site.

What is the smoking policy?

The site is a no smoking site. Any resident who wished to smoke would be supported to do so off-site.

We accept the following funding types: local authority funding, local authority funding and top up, NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding, and private/self-funding.
