Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

Individuals can visit their family home on weekends on a regular basis and during festive periods. We will do whatever is required to support this, as we understand the importance of family connections.

Can friends and families visit?

Loved ones can attend frequently and come along on our day trips. We communicate via video call and text messages.

We will work with families on an individual basis to work out the best way of staying in touch. Our team are keen to keep everyone in the loop, this may include regular meetings, phone calls or messages.

We have a communal landline and residents also have their own mobile devices, if appropriate. We can support people to stay in touch with the people they care about, where assistance is needed.

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?

Our doors are not locked. Of course, we will conduct individual risk assessments to make sure people are kept safe.

What do residents eat and how do meal times work?

Residents can choose and prepare their own meals. If anyone has any worries about preparing the food, we can help them. We speak to family members about any special dietary requirements and seek advice from our nutritionists if needed.

How does laundry work?

Laundry facilities are available at the home to enable our residents to be independent. Our team are on-hand to provide support with laundry, where required, and we will ensure everyone has access to clean clothes and bedding.

Who does the housekeeping and domiciliary tasks?

Residents help out with the housekeeping as part of their skill-building exercises. We promote independence, and will encourage the people who live here to participate in keeping the home in good order.

All personal belongings and valuables are record and stored safely.

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. Their key worker may use a variety of communication tools to ensure the resident can have an input into the planning of activities. These include shopping, bowling, arts and crafts, cinema trips, swimming, gardening, walking, cooking and baking, barbecues and other daily living tasks. They also enjoy bike riding, day trips and holidays. Adaptations can be made to suit all ranges of activities, where possible.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

We use the PROACT-SCIPr-UK® framework, which means we focus on active strategies, rather than physical intervention. We require our care plans which include restrictions to be assessed frequently. We strive to understand our residents’ needs, and put in place the right support to meet these.

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. Everyone living at Rose Farm House has a say in how our home is run. Care plans are regularly reviewed, and family members will be asked for their input. We send out annual family surveys too to collect their views and opinions.

What are the car parking facilities?

There is a large driveway at the front of the home, which provides parking for up to 10 cars.

What is the smoking policy?

There is a designated smoking area which is located away from the home, where residents can smoke, if 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.
