Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

We support our residents to attend family events and visit their family homes. We will work with the resident and their relatives to ensure possible risks are managed. Sometimes, so that everyone is supported, the individual’s key worker will come along on the visit.

Can friends and families visit?

Family and friends are welcome to visit the service. We do ask that we are informed in advance of all visits to ensure that the resident is home. 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?

To ensure that the loved ones of our residents are kept fully involved in their care, we can arrange regular catch-ups either in person or via telephone.

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

Our home phone line is available for residents to use and there are cordless within the house too. Where appropriate, we can support our residents to get their own mobile phone.

What are the bedrooms like?

Fully furnished, our bedrooms have everything that residents need. We know they will want it to feel like home so we encourage them to decorate it to their tastes. Some of the furniture is fitted, and cannot be removed.

Are external doors kept locked?

No our doors are not locked.

What do residents eat and how do meal times work?

Residents are supported to choose and prepare what they want to eat. Sometimes there can be concerns about food preparation so our staff are available to help. Our nutritionists are available to give advice on any special dietary requirements.

How does laundry work?

Residents are given help to do their own laundry.

Who does the housekeeping and domiciliary tasks?

Most of our residents undertake domiciliary tasks such as cleaning.

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. Items where the risks cannot be appropriately managed, such as non-approved drugs and medications, solvent-based products and lighters are also subject to restrictions.

How do activities work?

Every resident has a tailored activities planner. This will include both in-house activities as well as visits into the community. Our staff team work with people on an individual basis to understand what they like to do, and what their aspirations are, so together we can plan activities which incorporate their preferences and hobbies.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

We follow a positive behaviour support (PBS) approach, which means everyone’s needs will be carefully considered within their support plan. We assign a core staff team to each resident, who will work with them to deal with any challenges they face.

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

We work with social workers and residents to develop care plans which are in the best interests of our residents. Care plans are regularly reviewed, and loved ones may be asked for their input, where appropriate.

What are the car parking facilities?

There is a large driveway for five cars.

What is the smoking policy?

Residents can smoke by the designated smoking area in the back garden, which has a shelter. We don’t permit smoking inside the building, and this includes vapes. Residents are able to buy cigarettes and vapes at the shops, if this is what they choose.

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.
