This may include support in a number of areas, such as going out in the community, personal care, cooking and cleaning, managing finances and maintaining family relationships.

Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

We support our residents to visit home whenever they choose, and work with family members to make this happen.

Can friends and families visit?

Yes, family and friends are welcome to visit anytime. 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 have regular reviews where the family and loved ones are as much or as little involved as the resident wishes. We can discuss with families on an individual basis what the best way of staying in touch is.

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

Yes anytime, some of our residents have mobile phones, however we also have house phones available for use. We can support residents to use these, if needed.

What are the bedrooms like?

Bedrooms are all furnished, and residents are supported to personalise them to suit their needs and wishes. People are welcome to bring furnishings and personal items, to make their space their own.

Are external doors kept locked?

No, our external doors are only locked at night, as you would your own home. This helps us ensure the safety of our residents.

What do residents eat and how do meal times work?

Menu planning is completed on the first of each month with our residents involvement. Residents are supported to choose what they would like to eat. We promote healthy eating as much as we can, and can also support special dietary requirements, as well as provide alternative meals if someone changes their mind about what they want.

How does laundry work?

We do laundry daily, and we encourage our residents to participate in this, as part of their activities of daily living. We have laundry facilities on-site for this.

Who does the housekeeping and domiciliary tasks?

We encourage our residents to participate in housekeeping tasks with support from our care team. Every resident has a ‘jobs day’ in which they are encouraged to clean their bedroom. This helps people take pride in their environment and grow their independent skills.

Is there anything they can’t bring or have?

Residents are not allowed to bring anything illegal or anything that would put other residents at risk onto the premises.

How do activities work?

The support and activities are very much led by our residents. They choose what they would like to do, including visits into the community as well as pursuits at the home. We will also organise activities in groups, including days out to local attractions.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

Brickbridge House has a PBS practitioner, who works with residents and staff to develop and implement bespoke PBS plans. We use the PROACT-SCIPr-UK® framework, which means we advocate for least restrictive practice. We require our care plans which include restrictions to be assessed frequently, for example procedures for interventions such as pro re nata (PRN) medication are regularly reviewed and removed, where possible.

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

Yes, with consent from the resident. 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, if appropriate.

What are the car parking facilities?

Brickbridge House has its own driveway, and there is parking at the front.

What is the smoking policy?

We have a designated area in the back garden for residents to smoke or to vape, which has a shelter. 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. Many people are eligible for financial help towards the cost of support, and this funding can be accessed by contacting your local authority. Once funding has been agreed, we will work with your local care team to put together a bespoke package of care. Please note, referrals for NHS or Local Authority funded services must come from a referring organisation.
