Household Model of Care

Our Household Model of Care puts our residents at the heart of everything we do. This innovative and award winning approach breaks down the traditional facility into households, each with their own front door for privacy, kitchen, living rooms, private bedrooms, comfortable dining rooms, private back gardens and plenty of extra spaces. Gone are the institutional ward type buildings and practices. Our team wears regular clothes. The households are furnished in comfortable homely décor, cosy sofas, and personal belongings. Our households smell like home, look like home and most importantly feel like home.

Everyone who lives here has the freedom to choose how their day goes; when to wash, when to get up, when to eat and how to spend their day. Household life is “normal,” yet full of new experiences and stimulating activities.
