Residential Care Services
We operate a key worker system and each resident has three key workers who are responsible for the different aspects of the individuals needs. Even though complex requirements of care may lead to a higher degree of dependency, we stress the importance of building a trusting relationship to provide help and support whilst still encouraging the residents to maintain their own personal choices. To do this we person centred planning to ensure the residents have real opportunities, choice and control over their lives.
Our staff are trained and fully adept at providing the full range of care requirements for our residents. We emphasise the importance of having close working relationships with a wide team of health care professionals including: GPs, local hospitals, physiotherapists and occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, dietitians, psychologists, psychiatrists, and district and community nurses.
We provide waking night staff support throughout the night.
We have a holiday apartment in Mojacar, Andalusia, Spain accommodating up to 6 people at a time. There are lots of fun activities in Spain to join in with such as sailing, jet skiing, swimming at the Aqua Park and scuba diving. Or enjoy a relaxing stay experiencing the sights, sun, sea and sand! The apartment overlooks a golf course and situated within walking distance to the beach.
We have also recently purchased a 4 birth motor home enabling everyone in our care to still enjoy having a holiday and have new experiences whilst restrictions are still in place.
