Family and friends FAQs

How does home leave work?

If appropriate, all residents are encouraged and supported to have an overnight family stay based on the resident and family preferences. A risk assessment would be discussed and agreed with a contingency plan in place, should this be deemed necessary.

Can friends and families visit?

Yes, friends and family are welcome to visit, the usual process is to organise this with the site in advance and we can then keep a count-down with residents and ensure everything runs smoothly.

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

Yes, family input is valuable, though this would also depend on the residents’ preferences and wishes. The home manager welcomes calls and input from family members, as they are the individuals who know their relatives best. They are also happy to answer any questions.

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

Yes, we have phones available in the home that residents can use to contact loved ones any time. Some of our residents may also have their own mobile.

Residents are not allowed to bring illegal substances onto the premises. Any additional furniture would need to be agreed in advance with the home manager.

How do activities work?

Each resident is supported to live the life they choose, activities are discussed and agreed and tailored to suit the needs of the resident. Our ideal location in Abergavenny gives us access to a wide variety of community amenities, which residents access as part of their activities calendar.

How will residents be supported with their behavioural needs?

We have a MDT on-site, who carry out regular reviews of support and medication to ensure any behavioural needs are well managed. We focus on really understanding the needs and goals of the people we support, and will put into place strategies to ensure we can help meet these.

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

Yes, we work with families, the MDT and other health and social care professionals in the resident’s wider circle of support to create a care plan that is bespoke to each resident. This plan will be regularly reviewed and updated with any changes.

What are the car parking facilities?

There is a small amount of off-street parking available.

What is the smoking policy?

Smoking is not permitted on-site, and so anyone wishing to smoke will need to do so outside of the property.

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.
