Person-centred planning is at the heart of everything we do, based on the specific needs of the individuals in our care. We understand that consistency and continuity of care is important for the individuals we care for.
The service has four en-suite bedrooms, as well as a one bedroom apartment. This apartment has an en-suite bedroom, a kitchenette, lounge and their own access to the communal garden. This apartment gives an individual the option to live independently in their own space, or to join in socially in the communal spaces within the house.
As part of our care pathway, our service enables residents to build upon earlier learnt skills to achieve further independence, self-advocacy and confidence leading to a better quality of life. Individuals can gain skills through extended learning on a number of accredited platforms.
Interventions are matched according to individual needs and our life skills development programmes are overseen by our activity coordinators. The integrated MDT consists of occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, psychology and psychiatry. The team supports the development of daily living skills and reduction in maladaptive behaviours.
Our staff use non-aversive positive approaches and are trained in specialised intervention techniques and sensory integration strategies. A combination of person-centred planning, measurement of progress and a full multi-disciplinary approach can only result in the best outcomes for each individual.
