Our approach to support

Everybody who lives at Manor Field has their own person-centred care plan, which is co-produced with input from the individual, their family members and professionals involved in their care. We aim to help everyone in our care to make their own choices about the support they receive. This may include support in a number of areas, such as going out in the community, personal care, cooking and cleaning, and maintaining family relationships.

Our support approaches at Manor Field include positive behaviour support (PBS), which is delivered by a Priory PBS practitioner. We also have support from a local multidisciplinary team to offer additional services to our residents. In addition, we use tools such as the Outcomes Star™ to support our residents to achieve their goals.

The lengths of the placements that we offer at Manor Field can be transitional, short-term, medium-term or long-term residential, depending on the needs of each person.

Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

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

Can friends and families visit?

Manor Field are happy to facilitate visits from family and friends. Loved ones are welcome to pop by, and even participate in activities hosted at the home, although we do ask that we are informed in advance of all visits as some residents may become stressed or anxious when unknown visitors arrive. 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, where this is in line with the resident’s best interests or wishes. We can provide daily updates, if requested, and can also make alternative arrangements to make sure loved ones are kept informed, as appropriate.

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

Our home has a phone line, and there are three cordless phones at various points around the property which can be used by residents at any time. In addition, we can support our residents to get their own mobile phone, where appropriate.

What are the bedrooms like?

Bedrooms are all furnished and residents are supported to personalise them to suit their needs and wishes. Some of the furniture has been purchased to suit the needs of our residents and some of it is fitted, and therefore cannot be removed.

Are external doors kept locked?

Manor Field has a fobbed door system fitted on external doors, as well as on the main kitchen and all external gates which are lead to from the self-contained flats. However, we have a large, secured garden with a sunken trampoline, which residents can access at their leisure.

What do residents eat and how do meal times work?

Manor Field has a 4-week seasonal meal planner in place, which is created by the people who live here. Some residents make their food choices for the week ahead, while others make their food choices daily. The meal planners offer two choices per meal time, as advised by the speech and language (SaLT) team who we work with.

Residents are supported with meal preparation and cooking, if they choose to do so. All meals are portion controlled, following the governments Eatwell guidance. Advice given by nutritionists and any dietary or cultural requirements will be considered and incorporated into each person's meal planner.

How does laundry work?

Residents are given help to do their own laundry in our utility room, as part of promoting independence. Our staff are on hand to offer support if and when it is required. Our team will ensure that residents always have access to clean clothes and bedding.

Who does the housekeeping and domiciliary tasks?

Manor Field strives to help the people who live here to engage in their activities of daily living, and our support team will support them to undertake tasks such as cleaning. The remainder of the tasks are carried out by support staff, to maintain a clean and safe living environment.

Is there anything they can’t bring or have?

Residents are not allowed to bring illegal substances onto the premises. We would also ask that people do not bring high risk personal items into the house. We may place restrictions on some items where the risks cannot be appropriately managed, such as non-approved drugs and medications, solvent-based products, and lighters.

How do activities work?

Activities are planned according to our residents’ choices and interests. Thorough risk assessments are conducted before any activity. Everyone has a tailored activities planner, which will include both in-house activities as well as visits into the community. Their key worker may use a variety of communication tools to ensure they can have an input into the planning of activities.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

Manor Field uses a PBS approach to support, and embraces the PROACT-SCIPr-UK® framework, which means we focus on proactive strategies, rather than physical intervention. We require our care plans which include restrictions to be assessed and reviewed frequently, promoting the least restrictive practices. Where more bespoke approaches may be required, the necessary best interest processes will always be followed prior, and reviewed regularly. Wherever possible, consent is gained from the person supported when implementing plans.

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

Yes, we encourage families and extended support providers to be involved with the care plans, where this is in the resident’s best interests. We use a variety of communication tools to work collaboratively with the person we care for to co-produce the plans so they are tailored to their need. In addition, we make sure to continually review our care plans, keeping them updated when a resident’s support needs change.

What are the car parking facilities?

There is on-site parking for eight cars at Manor Field.

What is the smoking policy?

We have a designated area in the garden for residents to smoke or to vape, and they can be supported to purchase cigarettes at the shop, if this is what they choose. However, we do promote healthy lifestyles and can support residents with smoking cessation programmes.

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.
