Visiting the unit
Family / carers
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all visits are facilitated outside of the home either in the garden area of prefabricated units. PPE and regular cleaning is in place to ensure safety following our Trust’s, and the local authority’s, guidance.
Estates / health and social care visits
Lateral flow tests are offered to all non-Trust staff before entering the home to ensure safety. All visitors sign in and out of the home on arrival.
To ensure all maintenance and repair work is completed safely and to limit the distress to the residents from noise all maintenance is planned to support the home and residents’ needs.
Support for parents and carers
All parents and carers are included in the assessment, planning and review of care for their relative. This is through links with keyworker groups, multi-disciplinary team (MDT) and within the annual reviews.
The home also follows the principles of Triangle of Care and regularly asks parents / carers for their feedback to continually assess the level of care and support offered to the families and include them in their relatives’ care.
How to access the service
The people who live at 367 Thornaby Road have done so for a number of years with no plans to move on.
If a vacancy did occur then the local care management team would make a referral to the service.
The manager would consider the needs of the new person and also their compatibility with the people already in the house.
