Our approach to support

Everybody who lives at Seabreezes 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 Seabreezes include positive behaviour support (PBS). We also have support from a local multidisciplinary team, including:

  • Occupational therapy

We focus on supporting our residents to grow their independence. For some people, this may mean developing their daily living skills within the home. For others, this could be accessing work or educational opportunities in the local community.

Comments from our residents and their family and friends

We were impressed from the very first visit to view Seabreezes. The location, accommodation and staff were all very impressive. My brother has his own personalised bedroom and en-suite bathroom. He has established excellent relationships with his key workers and is clearly very comfortable with his environment. He loves going out for a drive in the specially adapted minibus. The staff keep me informed of anything important relating to my brother and are very helpful in facilitating visits and video chats. We feel welcomed whenever we visit and I know that my brother is safe, healthy and happy with the team at Seabreezes

Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

Family events and visit to family homes are facilitated by our staff. We will work to ensure these go smoothly, which may mean the individual’s key worker will come along on the visit.

Can friends and families visit?

Family and friends are welcome to visit any time. They are able to join in activities within the home too which residents enjoy. They cannot stay overnight unfortunately.

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

Loved ones are kept up-to-date with the resident’s care through regular catch-ups either in person or via telephone. We will work with people to decide the best mode of communication, and the frequency of these catch-ups.

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

We have cordless phones around the home for residents to use and many have their own mobile phone too. We provide support with this, where it is needed.

All our bedrooms are furnished and can be decorated to the personal taste of people staying with us. We strive to ensure everyone who lives here feels completely at home.

Our team support the people who live here with their nutrition, and we strive to ensure everyone maintains a healthy diet and is able to enjoy the food they like. We seek advice from family members on any special dietary requirements.

A tailored activities plan is prepared for every residents with their input. This will include both in-house activities as well as visits into the community. We work with people to understand what they like to do, and what their goals are, which shapes their activities planner.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

Our home follows a PBS approach, and so we focus on ensuring everyone’s needs are met. We also use 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 frequently, to promote the use of least restrictive practice.

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.
