We deliver care and support to people with a wide range of needs. We support those with Learning Disabilities, Physical Disabilities, Acquired Brain Injuries, Epilepsy and other associated complex health needs.
Staff support individuals to ensure that their physical health care has the least possible impact on their lives. Complex health care needs, sensory impairments, epilepsy, postural management and daily health care routines are managed by the staff team and supported by our additional nursing staff, Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy and Speech and Language therapy.
Staff understand the emotional, social, communication difficulties and physical disabilities that service users may have and work to ensure they are able to maintain skills and adapt their abilities to take account of their disabilities. This in turn means that they can learn new skills, recognise their goals and achieve their outcomes.
Specific training is provided to staff to support people with a range of mobility difficulties and associated needs and we actively support communication using a variety of tools.
Staff provide compassionate support. We always ensure we have the time that is needed to support an individual’s care needs and develop their skills in order that they are given the time to express themselves and their care needs.
Specialist adapted accommodation is often required. This may include profiled chairs and beds, tracked hoists, adapted bathing facilities, extra wide corridors and doorways, lifts and ground floor accommodation. Regular access to sensory gardens and an adapted vehicle is also provided.
In order that a person can fulfil their potential and meet their goals, they need to be active and stay healthy and well. The staff team strive to ensure that this balance is achieved.
