The home is in close proximity to a range of health services and places of worship.
The home has a multi-agency directory which provides additional resources local to the home to support any young people with their care, educational, health needs and also with their hobbies and interests.
Care staff are attentive and familiar with young people’s needs. They take time to communicate and engage with young people and encourage their participation in activities in the home, education and the community and promote their independence.
Young people choose how to spend their free time. Some like to spend time in the community with friends but also enjoy taking part in occasional activities with care staff. Those who need support to engage in community based activities are supported to do so.
Young people enjoy good health. Arrangements are in place for them to access health care appropriate to their needs and records are in place to demonstrate appointments are attended and to monitor their physical, mental and emotional health.
Care staff communicate with young people in a warm, relaxed manner and take time to listen and seek their views.
