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.

Family and friends are welcome to visit. Visits are usually planned in advance to support individual needs. Unfortunately, family members cannot stay overnight.

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

Yes, we feel it is so important to the wellbeing of the people we care for to keep the loved ones of our residents involved in their care, where this is in line with their wishes or best interests.

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

We can arrange regular phone and video calls whenever the resident pleases, so they can keep in contact with the people who are important to them.

An activities planner is created for every resident, and it includes a mixture of both in-house activities and visits into the community. We are committed to ensuring that residents have an input into their own tailored plan and sometimes a key worker may use a variety of communication tools to seek their views.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

Our home has a PBS practitioner, who delivers PBS plans, and ensures we are providing the right support for our residents. We use the PROACT-SCIPr-UK® framework, which means we focus on active strategies, rather than physical intervention, and we require our care plans which include restrictions to be assessed frequently, to promote the least restrictive practice.

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. We value this important input from others, where appropriate.

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.
