The policy of the home is “Self Advocacy”. Clients are encouraged to make their own decisions on their normal day to day planning of their home life. Members of staff, friends and relatives will talk with clients about their needs, expectations and requirements in and outside the home environment.
It is very important for the client’s general well being, self respect and dignity and most importantly that they feel that they are living in a “Home from Home” that decisions are not made for them if they are capable of making decisions for themselves.
If a client is medically incapable of appointing an advocate then where possible an “Advocate Agent” will be appointed on behalf of the client.
The main concern of our home is the resident’s quality of life. The philosophy of our home is to look after the residents in a caring and sympathetic way, so that their privacy and dignity are respected, and encourage active independence where possible in some cases by the provision of aids and adaptations which allow them to move freely.
