Daily living

Each individual is encouraged to make day-to –day choices about things they want to do and the places they may wish to visit.

These choices can be made on an individual basis or as a group should several people wish to undertake the same thing. Throughout the day each individual has the opportunity to participate in the running of their home; from preparing their own meals to undertaking their own laundry and domestic chores.

Service User's meetings are held at regular interval to discuss life at the Home and ideas and suggestions are encouraged.

The home is staffed 24hrs per day with day team arriving at 8am and the night team taking over at 8pm

Meals and Nutrition

As the services are run as small homes we do not employ chefs, therefore all catering is undertaken by the staff members on duty who all have food hygiene certificates.

Menus are planned and agreed in advance with the Service Users.  In the event a Service User does not like the choices that is being prepared they are free to request alternative at anytime

Shopping for food and general supplies is done on a weekly basis and residents are actively encouraged to participate with this, ensuring independence and choice is promoted.

Throughout the day staff are available to support individuals to access the kitchen, to make drinks and snacks and also to participate in preparing the main meal.

As part of our activities programme the homes run a theme week, this involves looking at the variety of food for that topic, planning and purchasing of the supplies and finally the preparation in presentation of the food.  Each individual is encouraged to participate to make it an enjoyable event.
