Aims and objectives

What do you wish to achieve by providing regulated activities?

How will your service help the people who use your services?

Please use the numbered bullet points:

1. Our mission is to provide an environment whereby our residents are proud of where they live, our staff are proud of where they work and our guests are proud to visit.
2. We look after elderly clients over the age of 65, primarily diagnosed with varying degrees of dementia from the onset to end of life care. We always carry out pre-admission assessments to ensure that we can meet the needs of our clients and to ensure that they can be suitably integrated into our home. Clients are presented with a pictorial Service Users Guide which shows them the services which we offer, which include providing them with a safe living environment, a balanced and nutritious diet according to their needs, a laundry and cleaning service, as well as 24hour personal care as their needs require.
2. To ensure that we provide the right setting, facilities and atmosphere, so that our residents can achieve their potential capacity – physical, intellectual, emotional & social. This is maintained by ongoing training of all our staff to deal with this client group. The environment is regularly inspected and improved as appropriate. The Homes also engage an activities co-ordinator who develops activity programmes for our residents to engage in to ensure that they are physically and mentally stimulated. Social needs are assessed and shown in their care plans.
3. Environment – ensuring that our homes are free from hazards and dangers to ensure the safety of the residents and all those around them, whilst ensuring that the home remains homely as well as odour free. We provide visual signage around the homes to assist with orientation. We provide furniture which is specifically designed for our clients needs. Manual Handling equipment is provided to ensure that it meets the needs of our client group. Clients are given the choice of the fabric of their personal environment as well as the communal spaces within the homes.
4. Dignity & Self Respect – ensuring that all residents have privacy when needed and feel respected and are treated with courtesy, kindness and dignity, whilst ensure that care is delivered flexibly, attentively and in a non-discriminatory fashion whilst respecting each resident’s right to independence and their rights to make informed choices and to take risks. This is achieved by on-going training of the staff to ensure that they are confident in delivering a quality service to our clients.
5. Individuality & Choice – allowing residents to make choices whenever possible over such things as dress, food, bed times etc, whilst maintaining their independence and individuality at all times. We do this by ensuring that the staff continually questions their clients by offering choices.
6. Quality of Life – Making sure that all residents experience a wide range of normal and leisure activities as possible both inside and outside the home. We do this by providing our full time activities co-ordinator who monitors Quality of life as well as providing Physical & mental stimulation both in and outside the homes.
7. Emotional Needs – allowing residents to talk about intimate and personal matters, including, their sexuality, spiritual, political and religious beliefs, whilst maintaining confidentiality at all times. We do this by training all our staff to be sensitive to the emotional needs of their clients and to record and cater for their needs where ever possible.
8. To manage and implement a formal programme of staff planning, selection, recruitment, training and personal development, to enable residents’ care needs to be met. We do this by following a meticulous recruitment process and ensure that all staff receive good ongoing training and development.
9. To ensure all residents and service purchasers receive written information on the home’s procedure for handling complaints, comments and compliments and how to use it. We take a very sensitive approach to handling all complaints and deal with these as areas for improvement and look positively on all feedback given to us.
10. To manage the care service efficiently and effectively to make the best use of resources and to maximise value for money for the residents. We do this by effective budgeting and close monitoring of all our costs.
11. To provide care for those who are diagnosed with dementia, in a controlled and safe environment. We do this by minimising all risks to clients and treating all clients as individuals. We also ensure that all are staff are specifically trained to care for those with varying degrees of dementia, whilst treating them with respect and dignity at all times.
