One option for people with learning disabilities who cannot manage on their own at home or with the help of loved ones is to trust their care needs in us. Relocating to our residential care home, residents with a learning disability receive the same assistance with chores and hygiene as those without such a disability. In addition to providing a secure environment, the care provided is also individualised to each one’s unique set of requirements, interests, and aspirations. We offer a range of activities to support individuals develop their skills which extend from vocational, social, basic life skills, education and being taught to live as autonomously as possible.
If your loved one’s needs for care can no longer be met in the comfort of home, our residential care may be an option. Safekeeping, socialisation, assistance with medication, and the assurance that your loved one will receive care at all times are just some of the many advantages of trusting in us.
However, if this is your first time in this situation, you may find it challenging to understand what is necessary for your loved one. If so, you could be assisting a parent or other loved one in determining the optimal course of action. Take a look at our Residential Care services below and see if any of these are of value.
Short-term stays in our residential care facility are common for people who receive care from friends and family. Depending on the circumstances, this could be a planned stay while their primary caregiver is away on vacation or an unplanned break. Beneficial social interactions can be had in a new setting, with new people while the caregiver can get some much-needed rest and relaxation.
People can recover with the help of convalescent care by, among other things, taking medication, engaging in occupational therapy, engaging in physical therapy, receiving counselling, and getting plenty of rest.
We know that capacity can be a problem when there are short notice hospital discharges but as an organisation, we are ready to help and support the system to the best of our ability. We have regulated rooms built to the required standard which can be adapted to specific demands. Our dedicated team will adjust to any unplanned intakes.
Otherwise, we are already working closely with the health care professionals in regard to planned discharges. Our aim is to make sure that our incoming service users enjoy a healthy transition thus avoiding any kind of unnecessary stress. Their family members will be part of the process so that they are reassured of the safety of their loved ones.
Challenging Behaviour is a repeated pattern of behaviour that interferes with a persons engagement socially or academically with others. It can be anything from hand flapping, rocking,staring, anxiety, social isolation to aggression, disruptiveness, destructiveness and self harm.
At Superior we are proud to offer a holistic person centred approach which draws upon a range of services and strategies. These may include Intensive support plans that effectively manage risk, multi agency working, monitoring, reviewing and encouraging positive behaviours by using different reinforcement schedules and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
Autism is a word which covers a range of conditions , called Autistic Spectrum Disorder, which indicates a different way of viewing the world. The conditions can cause difficulties with skills and abilities.
People with Autism experience differences in communicating and socialising, their behaviour can be repetitive and they may be rigid in their thinking. The characteristics can be mild to severe and will all be taken onboard when putting in place a plan for the service user. This may include the textures used when decorating their rooms, or the lights used around the home, pre-empting the use of the tv or radio if they are not in their room, having clear instructions and visual prompts around the communal area. The service user will choose how their room is designed so that they feel completely safe and secure.
Day opportunities are more than just a place to go during the day to get out of the house. They give you the chance to learn new skills, engage in your local community, gain independence and enjoy a wealth of interactive activities. We assist people with learning disabilities to attend centres to achieve a more meaningful way of life. These may include attending church, clubs, going swimming or maybe visiting the library.
Whatever you choose, it will be your choice and our staff will facilitate having made sure that the organisation communicates effectively in ways most suitable to the service users, avoids jargon or complex languages. Our staff will make sure that the organisations are safe, work at the service user’s pace, check they understand and be creative.
Positive Behaviour Support is a form of applied behaviour analysis that assesses the social and physical environments in which behaviour happens in order to understand why that individual’s behaviour is challenging and how to change it. People’s inappropriate behaviours are difficult to change because they are functional; they serve a purpose for them. The aim of Positive Behaviour Support is to improve the quality of someones life and of those around them.
Our focus is on the service user and not their behaviour therefore we use Positive Behaviour Support to improve their quality of life thus reducing the need for restrictive practices. We work closely with family, friends and other outside agencies to ensure the broadest support chain possible for the service user
The home itself is fully renovated with modern colours and new furniture. It has 4 good sized bedrooms, which can be decorated to the service user specification, a bathroom on each floor, along with 5 communal areas, one which has its own small kitchenette.
All rooms have a tv apart from the lounge which has a projector. There is an office which hosts the CCTV and a medication room for staff only. The bathroom on the top floor is a sensory room that has a bath with special lighting and a wet room floor, for those times when you just need to relax and take time for yourself. Off the lounge there is a conservatory which leads out into the back garden which has grass and a paved patio area.
We understand the importance of maintaining a relatively active lifestyle and help to incorporate this into a daily routine for our service users. We have access to a plethora of available activities that the service user can actively take part in with support if needed. This may be anything from shopping, arts and crafts activities, cinema to maybe more active pursuits like horse riding, go karting, sailing and theme parks. Any interests of a Service User will be recorded in their support care plan. We also recognise a person’s right not to partake in any hobbies or interests if they do not wish to, but we will be available for help and guidance should they so wish.
Risk management is a set of complex and administrative systems, processes, procedures, and reporting structures designed to identify, assess and prevent risks to people.It is paramount in health care to prevent risk to its fullest and to protect the service users and the industry as a whole. We expect all our staff to adhere to policies and procedures pertaining to Superior and keep the communal areas tidy and free from risk by ensuring there is nothing left on the stairs, making sure all spillages are cleaned up, medication is locked away and the door locked at all times. As a rule the house is well lit, cleaned and maintained by staff on duty.
